Enough power for fogs to power pod lights?

Rigging up some Baja Designs Squadrons to replace my fog lights. Looks like these will draw 20 watts per light. If I just re-wire my fog light wires to these, will I get maximum output? I know most applications will wire straight to the battery to add them as additional lights, but I was just looking to swap fogs for these. I do have the wiring harness and switch if I need to run it separate, but it would be nice to use the stock fog light switch,

Thank you!

You'll be fine I'm running Diode Dynamics SS3 pros off my stock fog light wiring harness with no issues. I have had this set up for a couple years now no issues. These also probably have less draw power than the stock halogen bulb.

I have a pair of Squadron SAE lights wired to the factory fog wiring. It works.

+1 for Diode Dynamics SS3. Several years, no issues. Would recommend doing the fog light anytime mod if you haven't already!

I have a pair of Baja Designs Squadron SAE lights wired to the factory fog wiring as well, no issues at all and they are perfect. Especially since I split them in Yellow/White.

I bought some LED bulbs off ebay 55w and put them in the fog lights. Work great and really light up the ground around the front while driving. Plus it still Looks stock. Aslo put a set in the low beam spot. Left the high beams halogen for the amber light.

Easiest method is here: Plug-and-Play LED Light Adapter Harness H10/9005/9006 - Baja

Pair of those will be plug and play.
