Ok just to clear things up here... The fog lights on our trucks are not fog lights, anyone who has used them in fog can tell you they don't do a thing in the Fog except shoot light right back at you. Also fog light is a popular term these days, the lights that ford puts in are actually driving lights to help your peripheral vision more than anything else. For a fog light to be effective for one it must be a flet beam that fires low underneath the fog and also should be either yellow or amber in color to provide contrast as white light does not(it just bounces of everything). And this mod does nothing for your theory of standing across the intersection from some guy with his fog lights on really doesn't apply here because he can do that without this mod. This mod actually only allows you to have your driving lights on with your high beams. And Fords reasoning behing not allowing the fogs to turn on with the highbeams is the same as the reason the low beams turn off when the highbeams go on. The reason is because it theoretically cause glare back in the drivers face and reduces long distance visability. If this thread were about swaping out your stock fog light bulbs for a pair of 9005 highbeam bulbs then I think you arrgument might have a leg to stand on. That is a whole other thread. So keep your eyes open for that one people. I don't mean to get on you but I like for people to know the facts. And these are the facts.
Thanks and sorry for the long winded post.
BTW Ford should learn how to aim the "fog lights", when I drove my truck for the first time at night I was getting flashed by everyone and didn't know why turns out my drivers side fog was pointing up at the sky and the other pointing directly at oncoming traffic.
