Keeping the fog lights on with high beams?

I was wondering if there is a modification I can do to keep my fog lights on with my high beams? I did a similar mod to my '01 Ranger. It was pretty simple, all I had to do was bend a tab on a fuse/relay. I have looked around but couldn't find any info about doing this to Super Dutys. Has anyone ever done this or heard of this being done?

Mike

No modification I know of. Only thing I know of is a brite box. Innova Design & Distributing, Inc. - The Brite Box, Bulbzilla / Fogzilla, Diesel Turbo Lifesaver, Eclipse Sun Shade

I bought a kit off eBay for $25 bucks that's works awesome, the wiring diagram it came with is pretty generic and from for a 99-03 7.3....but using a test light I figured out my truck easy enough, just search for 2008 F250 high beam on eBay and you will see it...sold by highbeamkits I believe. Pretty nice kit I thought...

I did it on my 03. There was a write up on it somewhere on here. All I had to do was cut and ground 1 wire

I was just thinking this at 530 this morning... i coul def figure out a way to do it, but I'd be running wires and relays everywhere..lol but I'm not going it that way... so I guess i"ll just wait patiently to see if anybody generates alternate ideas.

Not sure if you have them already on the light switch or not. I didn't have them. So, I bought the lights and hooked up to #1 upfitter switch. They come on whenever I flip the switch.

I do already have the factory switch. The truck is a Lariat so not much needed(s) to be added.

I also have them from the factory... nobody seems to have any input on an easy way to do this... maybe we could look back for a previous super duty and figure out something for the 6.4's

The easy way to make this work... put a Diode between the High beam power wire and the fog light power wire. so that the power from HI beam will send power to fog lamps, but the power from fog lamps will not back feed to the High beams.
