Put in my ambers yesterday!  Easy-peasy on a 2005!  I can't do the full-time DRLs in VA if I want to use my fog lights with my headlights.  "Legally", you can only have 4 lights on facing forward.  I had the wife start the truck and put it in drive...I also told her to put her foot on the brake  :D.  They look great!

We have the no more than 4 lights forward at a time here in West Virginia as well, but I suppose I don?t play by the rules  >:D

I?ve got full time ambers and my Fogs on High.. Haven?t had an issue yet, but if I do I can undo it pretty quickly.

Where abouts in VA are you??

After thinking about this one some more....isn't in illegal in VA to have fog lights on and high beams?  I don't want to fail inspection.  I could always put the DRLs on with the high beams, I think that would be ok.

Look at the picture in post 3 of the link. For 4 on HI, you only need diode #2 between the 85 pole of the HI Relay and the 85 pole of the LOW relay. That will keep you in compliance with Virginia laws. Using just that, when I have my Lows on, only lows and fogs will illuminate. When I have my HI beams on, only the highs and lows light up
