If it's illegal (which even you admit to) then you really don't have an argument here. Only a fool tries to continue one under those circumstances.
I'd suggest you educate yourself a little on your own state lighting laws as well as the federal standards under FMVSS 108. You might be surprised at what you find.
Also, it doesn't matter if you intend the lighting for off road use as simply having it (or set up to operate that way) gives you the potential to also use it that way on the road.
I understand where BadTA is coming from as far as cycling his HID fogs on and off with the high beams. He'll do whatever he wants... I was only cautioning him as to the potential consequences of doing so. Some jurisdictions are touchier about it than others. It's up to him to determine if it's worth it in his case.
The only fool posting in this thread is you!
More light at night is generally always better, (not necessarily for heavy fog situations), as long as your not blinding oncoming traffic. Are you aware that night vision for humans is the first thing that tends to diminish as we age. Bet they never taught you that in traffic ticket school!
Your suggesting I educate myself on the lighting laws of my state, dictated by mindless bureaucrats and enforced by clueless d*cks such as yourself.
I'll pass on that, always, every time!
I live in the real world & I'd rather be able to see at night, all the time, every time. Thanks
Never had a problem using my JW Speaker fogs along with the OEM HID's on my 2012 WK2 and every other vehicle I've owned that I set up to burn both fogs and hi-beams at the same time. NEVER!
Once got pulled over for having a dirty rear license plate, after a snow storm, at night with both fogs and hi-beams on....... Guess what... after I stopped laughing for the dirty plate even the cop had to laugh I was sent on my way, no ticket no foul.
From your posts in this thread it appears your that a**hole cop everyone would be better off to avoid. Writing mindless stupid tickets to everyday citizens as real crime runs unchecked and drugs are everywhere. Thanks for your input Mr. law and order. Now please go away!
