Where is the best place to get OEM foglights and the wiring?
How hard are they to install?
Are there any other options that would look better?

E-Bay. $106.00 shipped. Really easy to install! The thing that takes the most time is cutting out the holes. I still need to remove the lights and make the hole bigger so that I can adjust the beam if they ever needed it.

What about wiring? Is that difficult? And what about the switch for it? Will turn on when just the corners are on?

I thought you had to program the BCM if your truck didn't come with foglights stock....

I got my through gmpartsdirect and I think the total was around $80-90 shipped. This was a few years ago though. Inlcuded everything needed, except reprogramming the bcm. That was another $75 from the stealership. Everything is fairly straight forward, comes with detailed instructions.

I have seen where some people will just wire them in with the parking lights so the fogs come on with the parking lights. Don't know exactly how to do this though.

FYI

I purchased my OEM foglights from a member on here a couple weeks ago. I cut out the holes, and used some hardware from Lowes to attach them. The stock bumper has 4 holes where the bracket will mount to. Each bulb has a positive side, and a ground side. I grounded the lights on the frame rail. Then ran one power wire into a scotch lock with the other power lead, then ran that to a rocker switch in the cabin. Found a hot lead on the fuse box under the dash. I placed the LED rocker underneath my cargo light switch. Ill get some pictures this weekend of the install.

If you wanted your fogs to turn on with your parking lamps, you would just need to play with a test light. Follow the wiring from the factory light switch. Find the wire that is hot with the foglamps on, then use a scotch lock to pull power from.
