There are threads on here, somewhere, that will solve your problem.
1) you'll need a new turn-signal stalk that has Autolamp feature. Your current stalk has resale value here since adding fog lights is a popular mod. Instead of headlights OFF, PARK, ON, you'll have OFF, AUTO, PARK, ON.
2) you'll need a photo eye sensor thingy installed in the middle of the dash, between the defrost ducts. IIRC, its a $50 part. Going off memory here.
3) some have found they needed an extra wire or two added, supposedly simple, whereas others have not needed the additional wiring. Hit or miss I guess, depending on other options you may/may not have.
4) your local dealership will need to reprogram/teach your BCM, or body control module. Some have said they've played dumb -- "hey, my autolamps aint working", and had warranty programming free. Otherwise its probably an hour labor @ $95 or whatever they are getting there days.
Now your headlights can come on automatically at dusk. When you shut off your truck and get out, the headlights will stay on to "follow you home". Without the obnoxious warning chime. And they'll go off.
What is convenience worth?
