Do you mean have your fog lights stay on when your high beams are on?

I'm pretty sure this is what your talking about.
Not entirely sure though.

I do know that there may be a couple post on the forum about wiring things up yourself instead of buying a kit.
Goodluck, hope this helps

Yes it is possible. It's known as the "All-On-High" mod. You don't need a kit to do it as seen above, all you need are two IN4004 rectifier diodes, found at Radio Shack. Will cost less than $2. There's a video on YouTube where someone with an 03-06 body style Silverado shows the process.

His is a 1995 according to his information under his avatar. He may need a kit in his case.

yup, it's a 1995. i am installing BI-XENON MORIMOTO MINI STAGE III KIT when it arrives. i need to have the low beams stay on when i switch to high beams because, inside the projector shield will be activated by high beams. and making the H1 low beams look like high beams when it is activated for high beams.

Maybe the manufacturer of the lights you are getting include or make a kit for it so they will stay on.
