for those with fog lights

I was wondering how often do you use them?

1. all the time (day and night)
2. whenever it's dark.
3. only in adverse conditions (fog, rain, snow, dust, etc)
4. never.
5. only in the city.
6. only on the dark, open road.

factory fog lights, often. Most days i will turn just the fogs and running lights on if it's not clear out, and always on in dusk/night.
I like the look of just fogs on with my truck

MY 7" driving have only been on twice on dark back roads, and my PIAA 520's once in a while. both are too bright to use in town anyway.

Fogs are on anytime my lights are on. Every little bit of light I can get (without using the HID's)

Mine are always on. I have a switch in my truck to turn them off, but I don't. Whenever my key is in the on position, so are my fogs. Mine aren't factory, though. And they are only bright if I have them pointed up. However, my bulbs burnt our recently, so I have to replace them.

Yep

I dont know why you wouldnt. They make your truck look much cooler looking at (with fogs on as well) and atleast on my 03 they put out quite a bit of light, which is always good. Im always confuzzled when i see another ranger without its fogs on with their headlights.

Yeah, mine are always on as well. I just think it looks better not to mention people in Florida can't drive so anything you can do to get noticed so they don't run into you is good.

Well I dont use them all the time because i can see just fine with just my headlights on. The only times I use mine are when its foggy out or im driving during the night up at my cabin, where there are no other lights around.

to answer my own question, i use my fog lights only in bad weather conditions, or if i'm on a dark, winding, unfamiliar road.

How do you turn them on without the headlights being on?

I have yellow fogs and they look awesome when there is snow on the ground. other than that i use them whenever i feel like it.

the '01 + fog light switch is seperate from the headlamp switch. so, if you have your parking lamps on, you can depress the switch, activating the fogs.

Factory fogs, all the time.

Whenever my lights are on (parking during the day, lowbeams at night)

So everytime I'm in my truck, they are on.

Whenever my runners are on, my foglights are too, along with normal driving lights...

The first day I got the truck, I switched the fog lights on.. and havent shut them off since except to test different things here and there :-)
