    payup You're talking big money to do this. You have to buy all new replacement markers with the bulbs and strobes in once housing, and run all the strobe wires up the pillars and into the headliner to connect all the strobes.

    I ended up getting 1 watt leds and mounting them in the marker lights. Two on each outside and eight in the middle bar. Because the marker light's lenses are diffuser type, it ends up more of a glowing light than a piercing light. But it's effective nevertheless.

    I have been playing with this idea for some time now and believe there are two different ways to do this, one would be install a headlight flasher to your existing clearance lights so that they will wig wag (alternate) the other option i believe will work would be to mount a small LED light in the Clearance light housing i as thinking of using this, http://www.sirennet.com/wh0s-0--cr.html the flange pops right off and these lights are bright for there size
