DON'T. Otherwise you will blind the **** out of all the other drivers.

i thought i read somewhere too that the wiring isn't made to handle that kind of draw and it isn't safe.

tyou can do it. You have to create a relay set up so the stock wiring isn't taking the full load.

Mike1995: you dont drive with high beams around people anyways.

Mike you DO realize some other makes of cars come from the factory this way.......

and in addition he would only have the all 4 lights when he commanded the High Beams on, instead of just having the high beams

The high beams dont stay on all the time, the lows just stay on with the highs to give you more light. and it works very well

Its not blinding other people unless you drive with your high beams on all the time

Bandit, thanks for the link! I can't believe I didn't find this when I searched for a similar topic before.

CC, do you plan to do this when you eventually get the HID'* set up. With that projector cutoff I assume you'd like to get high beams projecting light further while still keeping on the HID'*. HID'* would already run off another harness though right, so would it be bad to run a second one for the stock highs?
