    I have a 99 sr5 that I am putting an offload bumper on. I am trying to come up with some ideas on turn signals without having to drill and mount another bulb in the marker light. Not totally opposed to that mod but can't find a thread on it to look at.

    Any other ideas or link to a threa showing above mod let me know

    weld some tabs on your offroad bumper and get some trail gear LED lights
    (scroll down a little) http://www.trail-gear.com/miscellaneous
    then just splice them in to your existing turn signal wires.

    Thank you for the link. Seems easy enough.

    I was wondering about the rewiring of the markers to just get the parking lights to blink. Someone on that link was talking about it and I am gonna have to do more searching to find it. I would love to compare the two.

    The turn signals were both trashed when my wife wrecked my truck hence the bumper I am gabbing so to do the mod with the oem signals I will have to buy a set and take them apart.

    Rather than creating a new thread, I'll bump this one when an extra question.

    Could I do the signal light relocation to the parking housing AND wire in some LEDs to mount on the tube bumper without messing anything up? I like the idea of doing the signal mod PLUS some LEDs on the bumper itself. I think that maybe I could just "tap" into the existing wiring???

    The website I'm looking at is here: http://www.trail-gear.com/miscellaneous
