    Anything can be done - it depends on how much money & time you got.

    This has been asked before and there are other threads about it.

    If you need to convert your parking lights to turn signals, I have a writeup for that. :D

    I guess you haven't searched hard enough, because there are writeups on various sites, but the signal lenses weren't built to take the heat of fog light bulbs.

    I've been brainstorming this a bit. I was thinking maybe of doing the turn signal relocation to the parking lamps. Buy clear lenses for all of the lights. And then installing a switch in the cab that could control the lights in the bumper to turn them into fog lights. Thoughts? Ideas?

    So this is semi related. My left front marker light is burned out but after struggling with for over an hour I can't get it out. What am I doing wrong? Stupid Haynes manual makes it look so easy: "Remove retaining screw and pull out housing.." Not happening.

    I had to replace one of mine when i first got my truck. Mine was hard to come out but just put a little force into it and it should pop out. Just be careful not to break anything. Listen for cracking plastic.

    what do you mean burnt out? my computer thinks they are both working because all you do is switch wires there are no lose wires.
