Look for BrightBox or Brite Box. I can't remember the exact name of it. It does exactly what you are talking about.

First, I am not sure if there are relays for the OEM Headlights or if the headlight housing will handle the extra heat.
If so then why can't you locate the relays or just the wiring and hook them together with a diode, so when the highs are selected both come on ?
The diode is a directional device and needs to be positioned to stop the flow to the high beams when the lows are on, not a biggy just needed.
