Blinker mod...here's what it does, along w/ compilation vid

Watch my vid(nearly two years old btw)......it is a compilation demo of what exactly the blinker mod does on a 01-current ranger....but the same idea applies to older trucks too.

Below are all links to how-tos to do this mod. enjoy.

I did that one a couple of weeks ago.Vehicles should come like that from the factory.

I may end up snipping off the running light wire from the inside lights on the front. It isn't really needed and I think my truck would look better without them on.

ask and you shall recieve. I got alot of "during-the-mod" pics on my other computer, just havn't gotten around to transferring them over yet. I 'havn't heard much about this mod since hillbank started selling the Thunderbolt mirrors. This mod is still cheaper, can be done on any year, and can be seen front the front, rear, AND side. Should I post a how to?

If theres anyway you could find the model of that light that would be amazing. I think theres a how-to on GE how to do that, but if you want to right one that would be great. I like how clean the lights mount, if I can find the lights, this is a definite mod for me.

Is it a LED or incandescent bulb?

I would love to know what lights those are and where to order or find them to do that mod. Those lights look like they came with the mirrors. Very nice.

good deal I appreciate it. Our Auto parts stores around here don't have stuff like that. They only have ricer stuff. and filters, fluids the norm.
