    I will have to go take a look at my truck tonight after I get off work. It's really easy, mine didn't come with directions either, didn't need them. I'm subscribing so if someone can't answer your question I will get back on here later.

    So those aren't plug n play? You have to do wiring like in those other ones without the ccfl halos? My 2nd gens were completely plug n play, no extra nothing to wire but I don't see them anymore, just the 1st gen ones without ccfl & these 3rd gen ones. Sux if so, thought the 3rd gen ones would be plug n play. No offense, I still like these......

    What's goin on down there? Was just on the south side lookin towards Sargeant from the north tip of Matagorda Island a coupla weekends ago. Haven't been to Sargeant in quite awhile, maybe only a coupla times ever...surfin thing from back in the day, lol. I wouldn't think it'd be too much hassle to grab on the parking light wires to run the halos off of.

    Ok, the low and high beams should be plug and play. The led's and the halo's have their own wires: Red, white and black. The little marker lights that you can turn on and off have their own wires as well: one white w/ a black line and a green one. That is the wire that you will splicing into. Take all the white and red wires and connect them, run a wire from those in to the green one from the marker lights. Then all you have to do is connect all the black ones and then splice them into the white/black wire.

    It's very simple, you're probably just overthinking it, try it out and let me know how it goes. If you need me to take pictures it will have to wait until tomorrow because it's already dark here. Good luck.
