    I recently installed an aftermarket fog light kit and when looking for ign power for the switch I found that my ign post in firewall mounted relay/connector box is being used for my Xmas radio box.
    Can I piggyback this as I believe it only switches the relay
    Thanks

    There are actually several keyed (ignition key) posts in that "junction box" near the brake pedal.

    Is there a video or write up someone on adding fogs?

    on my 2012 Denali all of the post's in the junction box are all occupied, you can safely tie into a keyed accessory if it is just providing switched power to the relay it wont hurt anything.

    I see Tahoes with DRL and DRL + Fogs. Is that by default or did the driver turn them on? I know you'll run the life of the bulb down but I really like that look.

    I had seen a fog light kit on ebay. It was a little salty but it had a new headlight switch and wiring harness with it.
