Let us know about the bulbs in the driving lights. I was gonna replace mine with some KC's or something, but if there is a brighter bulb that would be cheaper.

They do make a 100W H3 replacement for about $12. My fear there would be melting the plastic housing from the heat they generate. Illegal too on road. I think the key would be finding a housing that disburses light in a driving light vs. fog light for cheap or just save up for Hella's or KC's, $60 -$75.

A while back I had mentioned that one of my breather lines was cracked and puking oil blow by, so I did a temporary fix with some heat shrink tubing. Well, finally got around to ordering the new line and it came in today. Got a new elbow as well. Figured since the line and the elbow act like a PCV valve and are a metered size, I should replace em both.

Do your front fog lights have a connector in which you can disconnect the lights completely?

You can also bend one of the prongs on your fog light relay so that they stay on with your brights...
