Hmm... well now you've got me going back to the original plan, except minutes all the relays and BS all together. This is basically plug and play module for OP needs. I have worked with ShoMe flashers before and love them, just wasn't familiar with this one.

Only concern is this is rated for 6 amps max, 3 per side. With 2 lights per side for a total of 4, don't you think well be pushing the limits pretty close if not exceeding them

Haha I like this, have multiple guys with experience and knowledge working on this. I know it'll work great, just to figure out now which will be easier and clean.

I am holding off on buying lights right now.

As far as which will be blinking for turn signals, I think it would look awesome to have them do 1&2 do left and 3&4 do right! If we can swing that... If not no worries.

My main goal is to have multi functional lights that are both dust lights and blinkers. If we could find clear lensed LED's with both amber and red that would be cool but probably not necessary or possible from what I've researched. Haven't found a single on that doesn't cost hundreds for that type of light..

This is any "help" threads dream come true with all this bouning ideas around to find the best option.

OK, so after looking at everything, I think going back to the original design but substituting the ShoMe 11.1005STT as mentioned earlier is the best option. This flasher gives us the option to wire the lights directly into the turn signals without any need for relays, diodes, or crazy wiring schematics.

I did the math on the power ratings for THESE lights that you found earlier. It does not show the wattage of each light, BUT we can assume that each individual LED does not exceed 1w each. That means that each light consumes no more than 10w total. 10watts @ 12 volts = 0.83 amps. So it is safe to assume that each light draws less than 1 amp in total. So our max power consumption will be 2 amps per side, and 4 amps total. This module limits us to 6 amps MAX and 3 amps per side. It calles for a 5 amp fuse so we will make it just fine.

My final recommendation would be to order the following:

-ShoMe Flasher 11.1005STT retails for $48.22 but can be found much cheaper online.
-Two sets of THESE led lights you found on ebay
-A custom on/off switch of your liking from Otrattw.
-A small single momentary push button switch.
-Misc wiring and installation supplies.

Nice! I'm gonna recommend you cut the box and install the lights on your own cuz that's gonna take time and I don't have the resources to cut the box. Once the lights are in I can help you wire it up. It's going to be pretty hard to schedule a time cuz I work 7 days a week now, usually around 70+ hours a week. I don't even have time for the GF so hopefully we can figure something out.
