    If you have an LS1 like I do, you probably know that the Parking lights turn on and stay on with the ignition ON, very cool look.

    To do this for our Tacos, heres all you've got to do:

    Parts needed:
    1 3M wire tap
    wire cutters
    electrical tape

    Steps:

    1. Locate harness 1B and 1C at Driver Side J/B, Easier if you unplug 1B and 1C
    2. Cut green wires at 1C-2 and 1C-11, cover the cuts at plug side w/ tape
    3. Tap green wires to pink/reddish wire going to 1B-3 (IGN), tape if desired.
    4. Plug 1B and 1C back in, test

    To clarify, this mod is for the "Anytime Parking lights" to be on w/ ignition.

    The inner marker lamps will be on also if you have done that mod.

    I have a 2006 DC 2WD Sport, so this might be different for you 2TR-FE or 4x4 guys.

    I found an open fuse slot in between IG1 no.2 10A and IG 1 10A that is hot with ignition. (Attachment 1)

    I ran the add-a-ckt pigtail to green wires that were tapped to 1B-3. (Attachment 2)

    Place a 10A fuse on add-a-ckt, install Add-a-ckt exactly as shown, otherwise you will bypass the fuse.

    I put e-tape on the pink wire going to 1B-3, the insulation was a little frayed from the previous tap.

    Looks alot nicer and is more standards compliant.
