I was not aware that some states require the fog lights to turn off when you engage the high beams. That's good to know! I guess I will have to go with my primary plan to run the off road lights with the low beams.
I am also wondering if it is perhaps a better idea to wire the new lights separately from the OEM lights and directly to/from the battery with a toggle switch and fuse. I like the idea of not having to mess around drawing wires and mounting a switch in the cabin, but it looks to me as if it is the easier and most safe solution.
The numerical positions that you list, do they reflect the power connections from the Power Distribution box? Sorry for being a bit slow on this
Thanks for the pointers and keep them coming!
