Brighter headlights?

Ok...I've decided not to do the HID conversions for multiple reasons that aren't really pertinent to this discussion. I have however been thinking about rigging or buying the setup that allows the low beams to stay on while the high beams are on. If I do this, do I need to worry about any wiring that might be shared and have to do double duty? I don't want to start melting wiring harnesses.

Also, on a side note. I thought I saved it, but I remember seeing a site somewhere that had a setup that simplified the conversion, almost "plug and play", does anyone have a link to a site that has these conversions?

Once again, thanks for the help.
-Aaron

Yeah, that is the name I was thinking of. I don't know why I brain dumped that information. I can google that, but what about the wiring and what not?

Just add some extra lights on your front bumper and wire up the relay to be activated with the highbeam switch, You will love all the extra light when you need it!!!
