Factory Driving lights with HI BEAM

Anyone have a slick little trick to have your factory fogs run with your hi beams? Like a jumper wire somewhere or something?

They are considered fog lights, not driving lights (different beam pattern). It is illegal in many (all?) states to run fog lights with high beams. Driving lights are typically run with high beams.

One way to do it is to tap into the parking lights via a relay. This way your fogs will be on whenever the lights are on, including your hi beams.

The fog light behavior can be modified with the dealer's starscan. I think you can make it activate only on low beam, only on high beam, or independently.

Now back to a 2013 JKU Rubicon with "stuff", planning 37's with minimal lift.

I've tried them all... Jeeps are still the best. (0||||0)
