Those trucks also have significantly more travel in their parking brake. Not sure about your car but mine begins to grab right away. Which isn't really a good thing to drive with.

jbspy: are you talking about during the day or at night? My suggestion will be different depending upon this answer.

First, disable your daytime running lights by unplugging the white resistor (it'* about 3"x1"x1/2" located under the driver side fender lip.

For your lights....I know it'* sort of cheating, but it works. All you need is a tiny bit of aluminum foil.
