So could I just bend the wires so that the diodes are a little away from each other and then make those go into a bullet connector and then attach stranded wire to that and then put that into the DRL and Fog light fuses?

I checked with my buddy Barney and he says...

I somewhat modded this mod hehehe. I have the grill lights like a raptor. And at night I will turn all my lights off and run just my fogs cuz I can see about 30 yards with those and the streetlights provide enough. But I wanted the grill lights and FT amber DRLs to come on too. So I went from the out left side of the fog fuse to two diodes and into the same right side of the drl fuse so if I turn all the lights on and just hit my fog light button, the fogs, turn signals, drls and grill lights come on

Hey chevyavy,  you wouldn't happen to have a picture of your fuse box setup for your raptor lights would you?  And where did you get your raptor lights? Any pics?

how about dont used diodes, which get hot. I used these things called add-a-circuit. Everything is fused, so in the off chance the wires rub thru, its all protected.

Hey Krazy - is this on an 07+?  I have a 13 and would like to go this route.  Any more info you can share, pics, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

That is on my 08. Will you be at nationals? I can bring the stuff to do it, and we can take care of it in the parking lot.

Yup! That would be fantastic! Be sure to get me a $$ amount so I can bring it to you! :)

Is the diode for the full time fog lamps reversed (backwards)? Shouldn't current be running from headlight relay to fog relay to trip the fog relay and keep it turned on when headlights are on?
