Fog light/ high beam override

I know this has been covered numerous times for the 6.0, but my searching did not produce the process on the 08+ trucks. There is a "kit" on eBay for $25, but I figured it was an easy problem to fix, and had been done by members already. If there is a thread I missed, please show me. Thanks.

Incase you have no idea what I am refering to: I want to be able to use my factory fog light and my high beams at the same time.

Well you can get a few kits, brightbox is a well known one but its about $100, If I had a wiring diagram Im sure it wouldn't be to tough to hook a relay up. OR I hear you can hook them to one of your upfitter switches, bu that seems like a pain.

Are the upfit switches relayed? I don't think it would be that tough to hook them up if all you need to do is wire them up! Thanks 44magnum!

Ya they are relayed, here is a link for a little more info. I was thinking it would be a pain to have to flip an upfitter switch everytime I wanted to turn the fogs on. I guess Im just really f'n lazy. https://www.fleet.ford.com/truckbbas...tml/Q117R1.pdf

Just get some brighter fog lights. Say something like 4300 lumens each ought to do the job...

I looked at the britebox set up yesterday & I'm not sure which kit would be needed? I do think if I was to go with a wire in kit I'd go with the appropriate britebox kit instead of a cheap knock off kit!
