I'm looking to do something similar to the OP.
I installed a 6000k DDM kit in my Ranger and I love it, vastly superior low beam visibility, but unfortunately I've lost my high beams. I've also aimed my head lights down a little more then normal, just so I don't blind other drivers. So I'm being considerate
but it makes the low beams even more ineffective as high beams.
I've found that driving late at night on unfamiliar country roads - while not a regular occurrence - is a bit of a problem due to the lessened visibility.
I've got this style grille:
and am hoping to find an off-road / auxiliary light option to mount behind the grille and wire so that when I activate high beams from the cab they will come on. Right now if I activate high beams from the cab I lose all headlights.
I could purchase a hi/low HID kit and replace the ones I installed, but I've heard bad things from a buddy about the lights getting stuck in the HI position, and don't want to mess around with that. I could also revert back to the stock halogens, but again at this point I don't see that as an option. I'm not a 4x4, and don't off-road, so I want the solution to be fairly subtle, not an in your face light bar lol.
JayCheetwood did you ever find a solution that worked for you? I am curious to know how this resolved. Also if you wired lights to the high beam wiring I would love to know how you did that. Thanks!
EDIT: Here's a crazy idea. I've done the blinker mod, so the front side markers blink with my turn signals. I could then remove the normal turn signal bulbs in the headlight housing, replace with halogen bulbs to act as high beams (size and pattern may not work) and wire those up to be my high beam wiring. Somebody will shoot this down lol.
