I installed the Anzo Chevy fullsize 88-98 crystal headllight halo clear

For the parking lights I ordered through JC Whitney part #1046329 clear lens and put colored bulbs in

It was better but didn't like the outcome so I installed the relay that allows the low beams to stay on when high beam is on.

OK but as Stephen said not a car. Never understood the concept of driving lights only on with high beams, seems backwards. I wired mine so I can turn on whenever I want them and finally purchased LED fog lights from Summit Racing Part# ANN-881002. Pricey but absolutely love the outcome.

I can't answer as to what John used. He ordered from rockauto. Seemed very similar to what was original.

Tim how did you manage the driving lights and fogs with respect to mounting them both?

Mounting and cavity that accepts about a 4" round light, it is located at bottom corners.

OK, it sounds like he ordered the original style. Rock Auto sell two different styles. One is just like the original (They have a fluted lens) and the other is a clear non-fluted lens with a diamond style reflector.

Thanks.

Still don't follow Tim, Two holes and four lights or did you put one driving light in one and a fog in the other?

Agreed, however, in my state the law is driving lights only with high beam headlights and fog lights only on low beam.

Two new head lights, Two new parking lenses, Two Fog lights. The two fog lights are in the holes provided at the bottom corners. The fog lights hit the home run.

So fog lights no driving lights? Talk about the fog lights. Are they helpful in normal (not foggy) conditions? My concern I guess is giving up the driving for the fog lights.

Trying to figure out how to see the best under the widest range of driving conditions. For myself as well as my buddy.

This is what worked best for me. I do a lot of night driving and use these with my headlights. I use both all the time. Proper adjustment is the key. I have never had anyone flash their lights at me to dim mine. I realize in some states may not be kosher, but that is what I do and like.

If your lights are legal in your home state, you ought to be okay anywhere else, even if their law is different.
