    Well, I got this completed. I hate electrical stuff with a passion. I almost passed on this product but decided to give it a shot. I am super glad I did too. They look great.

    Well, this is SUPER simple....the kit includes everything you need for a basic install.

    The hardest part is figuring out where to place the lights. After that, routing the wiring is next.

    Basically - You attach the lights, run the wires then you'll split them to make them longer and use the supplied connectors to attach the wires to the wires going to the front turn signals.

    I chose to put mine on the front quarter panel, right in front of the door. (same location as snowgod06)
    I like this location since it is good for those in the blindspot who can't see the front or rear blinker.

    I noticed that in the first vids, it blinks faster but doesn't seem as bright. On the last 2, it blinks slower but it is brighter...Did you notice that as well?

    there was a difference in times...the first 2 were done during the afternoon and I used the flashers and the last 2 were done closer to dusk and I used the key fob to lock/unlock the truck

    I had always wanted to do that, but was torn with the idea of having a light that looks after market or just cheap in general on the side of my taco. Have you considered using an OEM part from another manufacturer? I assume you are completed satisfied with this particular set-up? What I'm most curious about is the number of holes you had to drill for each light? I'm guess two, but not sure.
