i just bought a pair of lights to mount on my bullbar. and im wondering how i should have them hook up. so im going to ask you guys on your opinion, and how to do it.

im wondering if i should hook it up as a on/off/on. thats on when ever i want, off always, and on only when highbeams are on. but i am unsure if i were to put my high beams on, with the plastic covers on, if they will melt (me being to lazy or convenience of stoping where i am, to take them off, just to have high beams on.) what do you guys think about that? or should i just have it off/on.


even if you think i shouldnt have on/off/on, how would i set that up, i would love to have a switch from http://www.4x4mods.com

i have a 2006

for driving lights, just hook them into the hi-beam circuit...one switch, on/off. the lights will only go on with the hi-beams on and the switch on.

hope you used a relay

the problem with doing it this way is that it quickly becomes a PITA to hit two switches at once when you need to dim your lights for oncoming traffic.

like the rest of us...you'll learn ;)

Yep used relays, and i have three switchs to turn them all off. I usually dont use them driving, unless its really late at night when i know no one is going to be on the roads, or on backroads.

Here you go, this should help. Just tap into your high beams instead of the low beams and the wire going to the fog lights to your running lights. Mike
