Bomb All Head Light On Mod 01-02 GM pickup

This Mod works for All the GM pickups IIRC from the years 00-02. I know for a fact it works on 01-02 but correct me if im wrong.

The mod Allows you to have your Low Beam and High Beam headlights on at the same time only when your high beams are switched on.

Disclaimer: If you live in Texas do this mod at your own risk. It is illegal to have more than 4 lights on at one time


1.First you will need a Screw driver, 1/2 inch socket with ratchet, wire cutters/strippers, Scotchlok, Eye terminal, Zip ties, pliers, and Wire. These parts can be purchased at a local radio shack , auto zone, or wallmart if you don't have them on you.

Push down on the electrical center cover and slide the cover over the tabs that stick out (i used a screw driver). After you done that the Electrical cover should be able to come off by pulling straight up on it

11. Now Re-assemble everything back together wire sticking out of the bottom of the electrical center. And to make things nice and neat zip tie down the loose wire to the huge bundle of wires that goes into the fire wall.

I chose to use an eye terminal and connect it to an existing ground i have made before.

Danny, where's the disclaimer for Texas residents?

If you live in Texas do this mod at your own risk. It is illegal to have more than 4 lights on at one time.

Just make sure you dont go near Jersey Village. They've caught on to this little trick. Dont ask me how I know. Thats why I switched back to my DRL/FOG/LOW BEAM mod with the amber DRL's.

Is there a way to make the fog lights stay on with the high beams as well?

KC makes a kit for the headlights called a quadrabeam. . . it was $40 i think and all i had to do was splice in a relay on the passenger side head light. it was very simple

you can use an electrical diode in the under hood junction box to jump the relays when the highs are on
