I am looking to add some aftermarket fog lights to mount on my Westin Safari Bar (don't know size or style yet). My question is... can they be wired into the existing factory fogs/switch or would I have to more than likely increase the fuse size or do something totally different with the setup. I dont want to run additional wiring and another switch into my console.

I wouldn't add any more lamp loads to the factory fog lamp circuit. You'd probably heat up the wiring, or worse, fuse the fog lamp relay closed.

The best way to do this would be to add a relay to the factory circuit so that the factory lamp circuit energizes the add-on relay coil and switches power to the fog lamps, maybe from the cigarette lighter circuit.
