Running lights

I was just curious as to how many of y'all run your fogs all the time with your lows? Maybe I'm just anal and a stickler about things, but I hardly run my fogs because I want to preserve them as much as possible. Do you run them all the time whenever your lights come on or do you do what I do and play it by situation?

I agree that it does look BA with them both running at the same time, that I'm definitely not arguing. I'm gonna start running them together from now on

I run them when needed and not otherwise. Technically in my state I think it is not legal to run them when not needed. But I'm not worried about burning out bulbs, I just don't see the point of running them and I don't think it looks BA to have them on.

Running lights and fogs on 100% of the time. Other drivers need to know that just because the SRT is sitting still, it can - and will - jump out into traffic and be up to speed in less than most people think it can :-) Just one more thing that helps other drivers see you as well.

WK1: I had HID Lows and Fogs

Daytime - running lights and fogs 100% of the time. I liked the look. And it's also safe.

Nighttime - lows, fogs and running lights


I leave it in auto 95% of the time, so daytime is the LED running light strips. When the auto turns the lights on when its dark its Hid lows, hid fogs, running lights, LED DRL strips, and the other LED running light in the headlight. 5 sets of bulbs lmao

Occasionly if it's cloudy I'll override the auto setting and run all the above lights minus the low beams.
