Ya there is a wiring trick that you could do to make it all work at once.....I haven't done it yet, but I would like to. I think it may be in tech info or we'd have to ask Willwren. I want to do it so I can run all my lighting at once on high beam, but then just regular lows and fogs on low beam.

that'* the idea....I got all silverstars up front and I CONSTANTLY get flashed with my lows on and I have re aimed them 4 times to no avail....even have them aimed to about 10 ft infront of the car and about 20 yds with the highs on and still get flashed, so I want the next ***** that flashes me to understand...... That was my lows....

not wanting to blind anyone here.

For all you young whippersnappers out there....when you approach 50...your night vision starts to diminish.

Having the "all lights on function" on a dark and gloomy road would be a big safety enhancement for me.

I still want the standard low/fog however but, when I hit the brights....I want them all.

I will wait for the braintrust to reply.

To do all 3, you'll have to upgrade/replace alot of stock wiring. For fogs with brights, read my post on it. It'* a major PITA to do, especially if you're bigger around or taller than me.

Brights with fogs are fantastic. I don't see brights, lows, and fogs being any better if you have quality (non-factory) fogs to begin with.

Thanks for the help.

I have read your article in detail concerning the patch to ground. All my lighting is factory however so it may be an enhancement over stock.

I read where you are very happy with the Walmart driving lights if I remember correctly.

I did not understand the "angel rings" comment though if you care to elaborate.
