well i did a search and didnt really find much, i read on another forum how to mod the headlight switch mechanism so that you can have your fog lights on without the headlights having to be on, but it didnt work.:dunno: my fog light switch pulls out with the parking lights on, however the fogs wont turn on unless the headlights are on.. does anyone know the way to do this? i seen trucks driving around with just the fogs on, i really wouldnt want to add an extra switch just for the fog lights, im sure theres a trick somewhere, any help is appreciated.. thanks in advance!

On the 02's and up its jumping a wire... on the 01's... you need to add another switch.

Anyone have a write up for an 02?

I saw one driving with just the fogs on and it looked sweet!

I think it's a wire you jump under the hood... I could be wrong though.

It's called the steve something mod IIRC...

This is super easy to do...he spells it out well. This is one of the first mods and still one of my favorite mods I have done to my truck. Of course I did it for a different reason, I wanted the fogs on when the highbeams are too. Country roads out here can get dark as he!!

later

I also did this mod, but am not able to run the foglights with the parking lights. For my foglights to turn on, I need the headlights on, or I can't pull the switch out. Did I skip a step in this mod?

You mean your switch won't even pill out in the parking light position? It should.

Nope, my switch has never pulled out unless it was in the headlight poition, and actually is pulled back in when taken out of headlight position.

huh, that's the way mine is from parking light to off position. not from headlight to parking light position like yours is. You have an 03 6.0, thinks that makes a difference?? IDK Maybe thats something they changed. :shrug:

I didn't have to modify my switch itself, it always operated this way but the lights just didn't come on...
