It's a device that connects to your lighting system and keeps your lows and fogs on when you click on your high beams - lows and fogs shut off when high beams are clicked on a stock truck.

I have one, just haven't put it on yet - going to get the cleared black headlights and do it all at once. I was just curious if anyone had put it on and if there have been any concerns.

I know about the jumper, but it doesn't keep the lows on, only the highs and fogs if I'm not mistaken. BB keeps all three on. (BTW, I like the price of the jumper better than BB). :)

This truck gets driven a lot at night in deer country and I want every bit of illumination I can squeeze out of 'er.

Also, the BB comes with the Fogzilla harness included.

I would think that having both filaments lit would burn the bulbs up in a hurry

Not according to their testing. And there is actually some excellent anecdotal evidence here on DT that it doesn't. I forget who the players were, but someone actually fastened the stalk in a 'pulled back but not clicked' position (to activate highs, lows, fogs) and took regular temp readings over the course of several hours, with no adverse signs or problems.

But, even though I bought the product and am about to install it, I posed the question re problems just to see what was out there, thinking along the same lines a yourself.

I don't think so. Awhile back I stubled across a long thread (I forget the fellas involved) who seemed to be a couple of electrical geniuses, and pulled every and I do mean every trick in the book to make it work - fog lights and brights, yes, all three, no. I think that was where I also learned about BB - I always noticed that when I pulled the stalk back without clicking I got the best possible light (in the Ram and all my previous vehicles) and always wondered how it could be set up like that, so I bought BB.

NOT SURE HOW THE GRADING SYSTEM WORKS ON BECOMING AN ELECTRICAL GENIUSES IN YOUR BOOK BUT I CAN DO IT.

I graded them based on what they seemed to know (everything) vs what I know (sweet f%$& all).

But dude, I have faith in you! :thatfunny By the way, do your truck first, and keep a fire ext handy. :thatfunny

LOL, yes! Fire extinguisher is a must!! LOL...

I think a simple 12v switch can be installed......have you looked at the wiring schematics for the truck? I would think that taping in to the same wires for the high beams on the column would allow you to manually turn on your highs....it seems as if the switch itself is what turns off your lows.....
