There's a terminal with a round cap on top of it just forward of the battery corner close to the IPM. Figure out what your current draw is for the lights and use a inline fuse greater than the total draw. Use a automotive 12v relay rated for the draw. Then use a switch to control the relay to power the lights.
Note: I see your truck is a 2014, so the terminal may not be there.

Are you wiring these to factory switch or a toggle switch?

Agree - use a heavy duty switch and heavy duty relay - wire them independently of your system so you can turn them on and off when YOU want to...

And I would recommend using ignition on power source for the switch. This way you can leave the switch in the on position and the fogs will turn off when you turn the key off.
