Does anybody know how to keep the fog lights on when the high beams are on. Is there a kit or some type of wiring to do to fix this?
I live in a very rural area and on dark roads its nice to have the road right in front of you lighted just like the road further ahead of you. So we aren't talking foggy driving just trying to throw more light on dark roads or trails.If you need the fogs on, you are in a situation where you need the high beams to NOT be on...

Only playing devil's advocate here, not trying to start a war, but actually there is a very good reason for it. The obvious point of high beams is to be able to see better at farther distances than your low beams allowed. Turning your fog lights on will light up that empty area right in front of your Jeep giving the illusion of better visibility, but in reality it is causing your eyes to dilate to match the closer lighting rendering you much less able to see any dark items that are being illuminated by your high beams, basically rendering them less than pointless. Try it yourself sometime, or Google it. That gap in lighting in front of your vehicle with the high beams on is actually intentional, for that reason, and even though it seems unnerving, anything you would see that close under normal high beam driving conditions would be too close for you to react to anyway.MCS013 is right, IMO. The stock high beams leave quite a large unlit area right in front of the Jeep. Kind of unsettling on dark, curvy, rural roads with brush/trees close to the shoulder.
Unfortunately, some gov. regulator, who knows better than us, decided it just wasn't fair to have too much light to drive by, even if it's not affecting other drivers, so fogs and high beams have been illegal for a good long time. No good reason for it, just is.
