    Supplies Needed

    Wire
    Wirer Connectors
    Clear 3157 LL Sylvania
    Orange 194NA LL Sylvania
    Electrical Tape

    Step one

    Remove the corner lights and remove the bulb and switch the running lights with the orange lights, cut the connector off with enough wire to attach new wires. Extend the new wires down towards the blinkers attach wire and run the wires towards the blinker on the bottom bumper .

    Step two

    cut blinker connector and attach the wires from the top to the blinker connector since this will be your fog lights or running lights."running light wires" attach blinker light switch orange bulb with "3157 clear bulb"

    Step three

    attach new wires to the blinker light wires that used to be connect to the blinker connector on the bottom and extend the new wires up to the corner lights and connect the running light connector "194 NA bulb" to the new wires that used to run to the blinkers.

    If this doesn't make since to you the " wiring is vice verse " your just running the bottom wires to the top and the top wires to the bottom while reattaching the light connectors to the new wires that.
    Top "running lights will still be the same connector just switching the new wires that are being ran from the bottom since this will be your blinker, same with the blinker connectors will be attached from the wires that are from the running lights

    Beau02's "fog light mod" writeup cost me about $20 to do. While a little more expensive, the "new" blinkers rely of dual-filament (1157) bulbs that provide more light than the smaller single-filament (194) bulbs.

    I cut the connectors off the side makers and the turn signals and swapped the side marker connectors with the turn signal connectors.) So the blinker wires are connected to the side marker connectors) and I got hyper flash. Did I miss something or do something wrong? I'm about to add a hole and just have both bulbs in each side marker housing. Being that I have a trail-gear rock defense bumper, and have no space for the original blinker housings.
    Was I supposed to change a relay or something? I apologize if I explained this in a confusing way.
    I know there are so many ways to do this but I thought the first way I tried would be the easiest.
