    So I did some searching and found nothing. When I put my high beams on, they shine directly down? I have started using only my low beams when going through the mountains because I actually get more light from them, weird huh? The only thing I have done to them is the bhlm, so with that being said, does anyone have any ideas to help me fix this? THANKS!

    Hmmm? Do you have HID's? I know you can put them in upside down and have them shine down.:cool: We have done it on a Durango and just turned them up.

    Are your high beams blown? The low beams turn off when you turn on the high beams and that part of the bulb might be out. Turn them on and walk around to the front of the truck to make sure they're actually on.

    Just a thought.

    I would say that they are just in there upside down. take them out and spin them around to where the hole in the meatal housing is facing up, so once you flick on your high beams the bulb can raise UP and out from behind it to shine up and out.
