    My seven year old son and I just did this today. Thanks @007Tacoma for the great instructions. I got it all put back together and took a test drive to see if everything still worked. Found out my rear view camera was dead. I knew I had two sets of wires unattached when I put it all back, but I couldn't find any more empty places to plug them, and thought they might have been loose like that all along. Opened it back up and the two empty sockets were starring me in the face. All is good now. I really like the look, and hope it improves the truck's visibility to others.

    I wanted to do the mod with new relay and harness but couldn't justify $70+. Did it the simple way as @jahulgan pointed out. Not as bright because I'm using the secondary filament but the mod was $8. Splice the terminal repair kit (82998-12440) into the corner marker light. Pull the blank plug for the third wire from the blinker connector and plug in the repair kit. Next step will be white/amber switchbacks.

    Would this work with aftermarket headlights that have DRL? My truck now does not have DRLs, but the headlights I want already have them. Is it plug and play?

    It would be more of a 'solder and heat shrink' then a 'plug and play.' But definitely not hard, probably a one day weekend project.
