Corner lights?

What are the purpose on 01-04, never noticed, when they come on? Thinking of getting clear corners. Some clear ones ive seen look better than others, anyone got a good source besides ebay?

I believe they are your parking lights on the front. If you do get clear corners don't forget to get yellow bulbs if you want to retain the yellow light from them.

I never understood why they call it a "parking light"

I just ordered white leds for mine and plan on getting clear corners...i dont see point in them and pretty sure its not a law to have them considering more than half the trucks dont have them!

Well they arent super white just like a pure white and not the yellowish tint the normal bulbs give off...but when you say blinker mod whatd you do? i saw someone on here that it was normal but when he put his blinker on it was a blinker and im looking into that!

I just taped of the now "fog light" wire and run just signals. To do this with a halogen bulb you have to up the bulb size to 921 (Like $5 at your autoparts store) or else you will get what is called hyper blink. Your blinkers will flash twice as fast. I think that LED's like your planning will do the same since the LED draws less current than a halogen bulb and so you have to wire in a LED resister in there too. I think that for $5 the plug and play of a halogen is just easier. I used a halogen that was the same color as the OEM headlights and then when i upgraded to PIAA Extreme white headlights, the corners now seem more yellow and amber like a signal should be. Here are some of my pictures from the mod
Just running normally

with the signal on
no it wasnt like that here ill post it hold on

You can convert them to Fogs. By having the marker lights as blinkers and markers anyways. You shouldn't do what Ben did which is convert the marker over to just a blinker. There is a way to wire the marker bulb so its both. Or you can add a bulb to the housing(how i did it).
