April 12, 2005I suppose another diode running to the fog lamp relay, just like the one running to the low beam relay would work but I am not sure.

April 12, 2005I just went down to auto zone, bought the 30 amp relay for like 5 bucks, bought an inline 30 amp fuse and just wired it in...its pretty simple to do..took me like an hour to do(but im picky about all my wiring) cheapest mod i ever did!!!
May 23, 2005Bright Lights are a wonderful thing and I love them on my trucks, BUT***, I was riding in my old lady's car the other night and some JERK-OFF had his running light on and blinding us for about 15 miles. *IF you lift your truck and put extra lights on it remember to cut the Damn things OFF when you come up behind somebody, and adjust your light to match your lift kit !!! There is already alot of "New Laws talk" about big rigs in my area and a few little pricks are going to mess up the fun for all of us just by being JERKS. Also you never know it might be an Undercover Officer or State Police you have those bright lights BLINDING !!! Otherwise, Drive Big and Bright and don't spare the horsepower !!!

Hey- the way I did was to just run a hot lead off the battery to the relay, use the high beam positive as the switching lead on the relay, and let the relay run power to the low beam positive wire. That way, the current through the high wire stays normal.
I did the same to turn my foglights on with the parking lights, so they are always on. I would have to drive about 180 mph now to out-drive my lights,..... maybe 181? I dunno? I will keep you posted after I bolt on the solid fuel rocket booster passing gear helper that i just got off Ebay, USSR.
July 24, 200588GMCtruck has two diagrams in his profile, one for 88-98 c/k and one for newer trucks. I found the one for my truck in a post and just did it last weekend. It's an excellent mod ...there is so much more light. This should be a link to the page in his profile. Hope you don't mind 88GMC, and thanks for drawing that up.
July 24, 2005Nice cheap mod!! Think I'm gonna have to do that this week!
July 29, 2005I did this last week on my 96 k1500 after purchasing a 12volt 30amp relay from radio shack ($6). It only took about 10 minutes. I installed the relay in the engine bay and used some liquid electrical tape around the terminals as insurance. Thanks for the mod!
July 31, 2005i got a 2000 but i know nothing about wiring. could anyone explain this 2 me in words id understand? because i really want to do this but i have no idea what yall are talking about.
August 1, 2005I went down to my local radio shack and they do not have any 12 volt diodes that can handle more than 2 amps so I will have to look elsewhere.
August 7, 2005any way you can do this to an older model? '85 per say?
