    I guess you can put this under eletrical help? I would like to move my blinkers on my first generation tacoma from the bottom lights to the top side lights if that makes any sense? I would like to replace the bottom blinkers with fog lights. If anybody knows how to re-wire this mod please help me. Don't know how over my head I am in.
    Thanks for any help thrown my way!!!

    i've done that mod before. i have an 02 tacoma and what i did was i figured which wires go where and snipped them. then i bought wire tighteners from radio shack and then connected them.. the corner blinkers and tail light blinkers would blink really fast and then my original turn signals became my parking lights. so they would always be on. but thats what i did.. hopefully there is someone on here with more knowledge that can teach you how to correctly wire it.

    Check with Janster. I'm pretty sure she has a write-up she can refer you to.

    Make sure you drain the blinker fluid before you get started and don't forget to refill it when you're done.:D

    bump because I would love to do this.... and get some pics if anyone has them.... I was thinking about just cutting the wires going to each ans switching them.... so the wires going to the blinkers splice them to the park lights... and the wires going to the park lights splicing them to the blinkers....

    I think the major issue I ran into - The stock front bumper & valance are so flimsy and it's hard to find a good solid place to mount fog lights to. I ended up putting a TJM front bumper on the 96 and never got around to putting fogs in that either. :rolleyes:
