Low Beams & High Beam Simultaneously

Some time ago, I read on this site that there was a company making a harness that allowed the low beams to stay on when the high beams are on. Does anyone know anything about this company? Contact info?

Thanks,
Tom

There is that, then there is a fuse and a relay wired in so that when high beams go on the relay puts power to the low beams .. Have had this set up on my 96 gasser E350 and moved it over to the 7.3 00 E350 back in 03.... still working today..

Hey AKPSD, this relay fuse setup is some DIY brite box? I've been thinking of making one but never got aroud to it. $90 seems like a lot for a relay and a switch.

An Auto parts store here that is no longer in business had this bright box type thing.. relay and fuse as a kit... after looking at it for awhile I figured out how to use the relay that I had from a extra driving light set up from my old caddy and well.... the rest is history.

That kit might still be out there some place , a number of years ago that kit was only about 35.00, it still might be close to that price.. For the life of me I can not remember the name of it or the company that did it.

If one looks at the wiring for the headlights there is the com, hot for low and the hot for high. When going to high the power is changed from low to high, the box or relay puts power to the lows along with power to the highs.

Any of this should be done with care...

With the newer head light setups today this may not work like it did years ago.

Do not use any kit on a '05 up truck to allow both lows and highs!!!

The The H13 blubs used on these trucks are quite possibly the stupidest design for a bulb ever foisted on the public.
The terminals are so small that they overheat, even at stock wattages, and melt the plastic
housing of the connectors. Higher than stock wattage bulbs are offered, but not recommended
and no harness will fix the problem of to small of terminals.

There might need to be a re-wire of some items..

My Lightforce are on one switch to be turned on or off at will.

The extras down in the plastic part of the bumper are on their own switch and can be turned on or off at will...

Mine is a 2000 with the 9007 , so it looks like I and others with the 9007 lights can do things that others can not do..

Thanks for all the replies. Yes, Brite Box (Innova) is the company I was looking for. I could have designed a circuit that would do the job, but for $90 to have a plug & play circuit, it's not worth it to do it myself.

That is simple; just ground the fog lamp relay. It's behind the fuse box under the dash. It should take you about 15 minutes to do the job.

Dont mess with any of that crap. Ive had the bright box, silverstars, Goss upgraded harness and it was still total crap. The light output was maybe 10-15% more then the stock output. I went and bought a 55 watt HID kit from Retro Solutions and it was a night and day difference......NO JOKE!

Can you elaborate on that at all?

I did both and there was so much heat that it burnt the chrome inside the headlight housing, turned it gold around the bulb.

If you want to see more at night and not wreck your truck....get HIDs.

Thank you.

Yah I forgot to mention that. The same thing happened to my lights. Not to mention they suck, they also will ruin your headlight assembly.
