Default Are there mods to allow the lower fog lights to stay on with High beams?

Hi all. On my Jeep I was able to pull out a relay and bend a post to allow me to keep the fog lights on when the high beams are on. Is there a method to do it on the 06 Ram?

With the BDGT, you can enable fogs to stay on with the High Beams.

You can either run a jumper wire between the 2 relays (there are write-ups on this, I did it for awhile) or you can get the 'Brite-box'.

If you don't mind me asking what is a relay? Are you referring to the fuse? The last relay I looked at was a little black box with 5 wires coming out of it. Sorry for my ignorance I am just getting into working with wiring in my truck. Thanks for any help you can offer.

Oh wait, you said 2006. I don't think you can, definitely not like the 02-05's. I don't even think the brite box works for 06 and newer...

A relay is an electrical device, typically incorporating an electromagnet, that is activated by a current or signal in one circuit to open or close another circuit. Basically, it allows a switch with lower current, in the cab, to open the relay (another switch) in the fuse box, to let higher current pass through so that you don't have high amps running through your cab.
