Grec-o-face and I are thinking of producing a kit to do this, but are wondering if it would be worth our time to offer it.

Time will tell...

HAHAHA ya, and a place to slide your Master Card, Visa or, AMEX...

We have talked about it, but with both of us dealing with so much to do and not much time. Well I'm sure both of you get the idea.

A nice tidy kit would be a great product to offer though.:drinkup:

Be careful.....your on thin ice talking like that without paying 300 per month because that
kind of talk will get your posts deleted just like mine....self promotion is a big no no!
Just offering a fair warning to help you avoid the hassels...

But please email me the info or price if you see this post before its deleted.

Good point. Point taken.

This thread was originally posted as a "look what I can do" anyway.

If we really were to sell any kits it would be in a different fashion...

Its essentially just some bosch 5 pin relays and a led flasher of your choice.

I used one relay for the parking lights and used one relay for the right turn signal and one relay for the left turn signal.

Ok for us DUMMIES in here. I really like the mirrors like that. So what do I need and how is it done PLEASE???:help:

1 per light, so 4 total. 1 for the left blinker, 1 for the right blinker, 1 for the left parking and 1 for the right parking. If you do only 1 relay for both parking you won't be able to have alternating flash patterns for each one.

I'm about to do it on my truck whenever the relays arrive. I'll do a write up for it for you guys including the parts I used.

Remember, this mod has been done on 03-07 Super Duty's. These trucks have LED's in the mirrors from the factory - making the LED flasher's job very easy. If your truck doesn't have LED's in the mirrors (or in the cab lights), but halogens instead, you'll have to swap the bulbs out for LEDs for the flasher to work properly.

:mechanic:
Here's another video - but low quality. You can see the cab lights and the cargo/3rd brake all function just as the mirrors do.

I am pretty sure my 2011 has bulbs not leds.

I think so too... That's kinda why I was saying that. I'm sure they're easily swapped for LEDs though.

Truck looks sick by the way

Not to hijack the thread, but how hard would it be to put a 90Watt Strobe in the mirror light housing on a 08 F350? Would it fit? Would it create to much heat?

Powastroka
11-26-2010, 01:55 PM
Yup just relayed the existing LED's

I havent looked that close at '08 mirrors, but I wouldnt try it. That is alot of heat, plus not sure how you would mount the strobe.
If it were me, I would just put an LED bulb in the socket, wire up a relay and hook it to a flasher

How does the lense come off the mirror on the Ford? My luck I will snap something. I really want to do this to my mirrors.Thumbs Up

Way do you need to remove the lens? There is no need to remove them to do this. You will need to take the inside door panel off to get to the wires.

RB8484...give a little more detail on how this is done :)

stupid question couldnt you just use a SHO-ME LED FLASHER UNIT, hooked to a relay so u can still run ur regular lights?

We need a write up from someone who has done it with detailed parts and instructions.
