    I've done so many mods to this truck it turned out to be a Dodge Ram 2500! WOW was that expensive!!
    I thought I saw somewhere about a mod on that will let you keep your fog-lights on while your high-beams are on. Please point me in the right direction.

    Yep, I did it last weekend. Took about 5 minutes. Fogs now come on with park lamps and stay on with High Beams. And, you can still turn them off with the switch.

    I don't know what your state laws are regarding this type of thing....

    You should check into the 'legalities' of it. Especially if you get inspections.

    I have aftermarket fog lights that I can put on anytime. Here in PA - its illegal to have fogs on with high beams. Each year during inspection, I have to disconnect the power to my fog lights so I'll pass inspection.

    dumb question, but will the fog lights go out when the primary headlight switch is turned off?

    In most cases in thick fog or really heavy snow when you would be using Fogs You sure wouldn't want your Brights On!!
