Behind grill offroad lights
If there is already a thread about this please let me know as i don't want to waste anyone's time but i was not able to find one.
I am wanting to put 4 off road lights behind my grill. 2 of them being low beams and 2 of them being high beams.
I have an 09 siverado LT which has separate hi/low beams and no fog lights.
I want to connect the low beams to my stock low beams so that they would run at the same time, but also run them to an on/off switch inside the cab.
for the high beams, i want to run them directly into my stock high beams so when i turn my hi beams on, the off road lights turn on also. How exactly would i do this and what would i need?
ALso does anyone have any recommendations on a light that has quality but still does not break the bank? Someone mentioned the HELLA 500 series. I don't know much about lights so any help would be appreciated.
Aso i have 6K HID's in my low beams as of now. Would i be able to convert the low beam off road lights into HID's in the future if i wanted to?
If anyone has done this to their vehicle pictures and description on how it was done would be great!"I'll Sleep When I Die"

I have the same set up but I have fog lights, yes u can convert Hellas to hid. I've wanted to do this for awhile but don't know a good mounting place for the lights. You'll have a lot of wiring work to do with the way you wanna run it, search only for wiring diagrams, you'll need some relays. Keep us updated because I wanna do this in the near future2009 chevy 1500 z71 4x4

yes something like that but probably on the lower section of the grill.
and ahmitchell1, i had someone tell me that i could run my high beam ones directly into my high beam power switch, and my low beam ones would go from the hella to a toggle switch and from the toggle switch to my stock low beams. I'm not sure about this though. and ill post pics but it'll probably be a couple of months. just trying to get the ideas straight so when the money is straight it'll be a go

I've always heard its never good to try n pull power from a light without it running through as relay especially if you want it to run either when the switch is on or when the lights powering the aux lights is on. But electrical stuff is my weekends hopefully someone skilled in this will chime in. I'm looking to just run a few lights to a switch up front. But Id like to run my aux reverse lights thru a switch or powered by the stock reverse lights, which is the same concept

i was also thinking about adding some high powered lights to my reverse lights while i was doing all of this, but i haven't found a place that i wanted to put them yet. I don't necessarily want them to be hanging off of the bumper or to be very noticeable. What type of lights are you thinking about putting, and where were you thinking about mounting them

They are Pro Comp 5 inch round spotted lights. I went 5 inch so the majority of te light would pass between the top of the grille and the bar. There is also zero vibration while driving with them on. That was a big plus for me. Hope that helps some.
