Default Headlights

I love the four headlight look to jags. On mine I'm not really a big fan of them at night, because only two are on in the low beam. I just thought of this today. If I simply split the low beams cable to both the low beams and high beams bulbs, will this split the voltage evenly, making each one dimmer than if only one was plugged, but not too bright to make it seems like my brights are on. Is this too simple? Or just plain wrong. The high beam cable I would no longer use.

Further reading: I want to try this because when I turn on my high beams, it turns on the other beam and sends a bit more power to the low beam. So if I split it, I can still use high beams, I turn those on, giving it that extra power and making more light. Hope this made sense.

Sorry bud, it sounds like a good idea, but it won't work! In order for it to dim both lights, you'll have to put some sort of voltage dimmer! You're on the right track though! A voltage dimmer inside the cabin that would allow for you to dim the lights while normal driving and then turn the voltage up for when you need high beams, I think would be the most likely solution to your idea!

Go check out your local auto parts store that actually has knowledgable people that actually know what they are talking about...I know I know...that is usually hard to come by!
