High Beams and Driving lights?

Does anyone know if this DRL mod applies to 2007+ Expeditions as well?

Converting Your Expedition or F150 Lighting System to Utilize Daytime Running Lights .: Articles

I would love to be able to use my high beams and my driving lights at the same time.

thanks!

Sounds like a royal PITA for some extra light.

I'm with ya Berry. Too much hassle. I'm just happy I can run the driving lights along with the parking lights in light rain or dusk-dark areas! There are times when you just don't need headlights but a little bit of marker light works just fine.

Driving lights? You mean the fog lights in the lower bumper?

The fogs will illuminate in either the Automatic, parking light, or headlight position. A real fog light system also has low mounted, bright tail lights but few North American vehicles have these.

@ Chuck
Opps! Yes..fog lights are what I meant.

I did find this other article but still unsure if it applies the '07+.

Dave's F-150 Fog Notes


It's a cheaper alternative than installing a set behind the grille and I have not found a set that are low profile that will beam through the openings in the grille. My other issue is that I have mesh grille inserts and I'm wondering how much of the light will be blocked behind them.

I'm up for suggestions! I posted this question before but didn't really get much feedback.
