So the wire on yours right now is exposed?

I dont like that idea. I want it to look factory as much as possible

Can you post up some good day time pictures of them up on the mirror?

Do you have wired directly into the park/signal wires? Did you have to add anything to prevent hyperflash, or do they flash like that right out of the box?

Yeah I didnt put that much effort into wiring them. You cant see the wires unless you stick your head under my mirror and look for them. It'd be Very easy to hide the wires inside your mirror , it'd look good too

Not hard at all. took maybe a minute to run the wires per side. Just make sure you dont run the wire's where the nuts are that hold the mirror, they'll ground out !

You only get hyper flash if
1 You have a Burned Bulb
2 You run LED signals ( they draw almost no power so it thinks you have no lights)

If you want to run Led Signal lights and corners and the mirrors like me you'll need a Napa EP-27 Flasher. But if you only have the strips with stock bulbs in front it shouldnt effect it at all.

*You'll need an EP-27 flasher designed for use with LED's....

Those look great. I might have to get some. Did you wire them into the corner marker light and also have the blinker mod to make this work with both markers and signals? If not how did you wire them?

Yeah if you want them to signal and be park lights you need to do the signal corner mod

https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...hlight=blinker

Just wired them into the new wires going to the corner light. They only work if my lights are on, that may be becuase of my all LED's in front

Yea that is what I thought. I already have the blinker mod so it wouldn't be hard.

I got the same mod Shane has with the little blinkers

Is the wire on the end of the strip?

I don't wanna have to drill more holes into my mirror

fold the wire over, let it lace ontop of the new lamp that this thread shows, and have it stick in between the lamp and the housing going into a small hole.


still request close ups.
