Brite Box - headlight mod

I was thumbing around on Diesel site and stumbled upon this...

http://www.dieselsite.com/index.asp?...ROD&ProdID=358

It allows you to have you brights along with low beams and fog lights. Has anyone done this? I really need more light when traveling in the country at night.

P.S. - I know about the fog light mod, but want the low beams on at the same time also.

It seems this would be easier and cheaper.

I bought a whole new fog light assembly and it came with it's own harness and switch. I am hoping that because it's set up that way, the fogs will stay on when the high beams are on because I can turn them on and off when ever so I shouldn't need to do anything like this. I also run older style headlights with high and low in one bulb but I have HID high and low so plenty bright and dont bother me not to upgrade to the 2007 with seperate high and low beam bulbs.

maybe that would be cheaper. I'll probably just do that. Have you guys done that?

Are there any negatives to doing this?

Kind of an old thread (the linked one), will this work on an '06?

Yes, the foglight mod will work on an 06.

I would not recommend the opening posters link as the Ford headlight is a dual filament bulb (hi and lo beam inside the same bulb) and I would think the bulb running both filaments would generate too much heat. Potentially damaging headlight assemblies or wiring.

Those boxes were a popular mod on GM vehicles as they run one headlight housing and bulb for lo beam and another separate bulb and housing for hi. So you don;t have any more heat than was originally intended to have. Hope this helps. All else fails, add lights like I did! (I have HID headlights, factory fogs, set of fogs in my grill, and a set of 7" driving lights on the bumper )

see I was kinda of wondering that too, because even right now when I have the brights on for a while, I can literally feel the heat from the lens. I can't imagine what it would be like with both lights on.

For sure doing the fog light mod now.

I bought a used Bright Box from another member here last summer. Its for my 05 and is the full kit, high/low and fog lights. Works Great!!! Last fall, I done this mod Budget Brite Box on my 03 F250 (no fog lights) and on my 01 Grand Marquis. Also works great and makes a ton of difference having the high/lows on at the same time.
