That is a 50W .47Ohm resistor, the lights only draw 24W/2A. It only gets slightly warm. We're not trying to reduce power (even though we are to a small degree), just trick the computer into thinking there are still functioning halogens in the system.
ETA: I ran the lights on all day yesterday to make sure I wouldn't get a bulb out error or flickering. If you look closely at the picture I secured the positive wire to the resistor with a single wrap of electrical tape. The resistor and the rest of the assembly looks exactly like it did in the picture. I also verified the temperature by hand after the fogs had been on for 30 minutes.

Looking great...nice blue & matching cab. I did the same with my F150 long bed with a mid-height cap shell, used it to sleep in on bowhunting weekend trips. Worked well. Had a pickup mattress, heater, 2 rows of LED's, 3x 12V outlets, sliding screen windows all around, old army folding table and chair, camp stove, lantern perfect for weekend trips.
