Fog light mod

Just wondering if anyone knew how to fix the headlight switch so that you can turn your fog lights on with the parking lights? I've seen numerous truck this way but I don't know if its a different headlight switch from a newer truck or if they just installed a separate switch.

I have an 02 and it does it from the factory. If you do a search on google I know a lot of Lightning guys do it to their trucks and it's not bad.

If you don't have the pull out switch that works the fog lights, wire a relay to turn on with the parking light 12v. Wire the normally open side from the battery through an inline fuse suitable for the current draw and then to the lights. Be sure you use big enough gauge wire for the lights too.

Maybe I'll grab on out of an 02 and see if it does it or not.

IIRC, theres a little white tab that needs to be filed down on the backside of the switch. I'll look to see if i can find a link to it again.
