Lighting Help (Fog Lights With High Beam)

Ok so I already have a nice set of xertronic Digital HID's on my 07 6.0L but hate that I can't run my high beam so I'm upgrading to the Xertronic Digital 2 HID's that run both hi and low beam and plan on using my old balists for my fog lights and switching up the bulbs.

My question is when I bought my HID's 6 years ago I forgot if my truck has a CANBUS/onboard- warning display? I'm pretty sure it doesn't but want to double check!

My other question is how do I run my fog lights on hi beam, do I have to run a secondary relay? If so is there a kit I can buy?

You won't get any warnings showing up by switching to hid's.

And here is the "Steve Racer Mod" that shows you what you need to do to keep the fogs on with the high beams:

That's what I figured just wasn't sure being I bought my HID's 6 years ago and forgot exactly what I got. Yeah that link helped great I stumbled upon it yesterday after writing this post when I also found this one looks like you scotch some wires together on the light switch. Seems simpler. Not sure if it works only on older fords rather than my 07?
