    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?
