    all the time at night. Morning/evening time too, when it's dark enough to run your fogs but still bright out enough to leave your headlights off. I run the nokya 2500k yellow bulbs.

    No... That's just an excuse to drive like an ass. It's one thing to drive a lifted truck sub HIDs during the night, but com' on. You mean to tell me people can't see a black truck in the sunlight?

    All the time. Day & night. It helps to make the doppy local drivers and the fu*king blind snow birds see you, and we have plenty of them here in Florida.

    In the Northwest, mine stay on all the time. Seems we don't get a ton of bright light so the extra lighting helps both with the driving as well as others seeing me.

    Rarely do they get turned off... on anytime my low beams are on... not very bright, but they do fill in close to the truck, and out to the sides (for cornering). Seriously considering changing the stock 35 watt halogen bulbs for 35 watt HIDs (4,000 to 5,000ºK color). Not the yellower 3,000ºK as I rarely see fog when I drive.
