07-10 Toyota Tundra Fog Lights Plug & Play Instruction Guide

For our hottest product 07-09 Toyota Tundra Fog Lights (have chrome and smoke available), customers always acquire about the installation guide.  Recently, when I go to Tundra Solution Forum, I found a very useful installation guide from the member MANGO with the thorough installation guide of this 2007-2009 Toyota Tundra Fog Lights.  On the other hand, I also find another installation guide for the OEM fog lights from Tundra Solution Forum by mhadden.  I will quote both of their post in here and do a comparison and I am sure that all the consumers who are still thinking should they get an OEM fog lights or our Fog lights can make a easy decision— buy our fog lights today.  It is because the OEM fog lights cause you over $450 and ours only need $245.  Second, the installation is a lot easier (and you don’t need to remove your steering wheel) So purchase our fog lights will save you a lot of time.  (Time is money!)

So here’s the thorough step by step installation by MANGO from Tundra Solution Forum:
