    It can be done...but its a real pain in the arse. Fishing the wires thru the mirror is a bear.

    I think we need to be a bit more careful of our wording here. For instance, to say that something is a “pain in the arse” might be a bit strong. After all, some people find building ships in bottles “therapeutic” while others find it, well, you know. And then there’s people with, um, “generous” asres. Should they be forced to endure more pain simply because they have more arse? I think not.

    And then there’s the comment that “it’s a real bear” to run the wires. Some of our animal friends – bears (and Subaru owners) in particular – might take this comment as somewhat condescending. And lord knows we don’t want more pissed off bears running around here – particularly at 3 AM on a plow run.

    There, now I feel better.

    I was hoping you'd get a giggle or two out of it.

    I prefer to look at it as a gift, but let's not get into my political views.

    BTW, I'm about as politically incorrect as it gets.

    If your mirrors have the side markers on them, why not wire in a Sho-me LED flasher to them?

    I have a Super Duty and I would opt to go the Show Me flasher if you have the marker lights in the mirrors. I have my mirrors painted to match the truck and the thought of trying to get the covers off with out damaging the paint or covers is just not that appealing.

    I tried to get the covers off before to install my smoked marker lights and thought I was going to break them so I had the body shop do it when I had the mirrors painted.

    Pretty simple to do, and with a Relay the signals still work as normal.

    Member - "Grec-o-face" - was the one who showed me how to do it (along with clearance lights). He may have a write up posted somewhere.

    This is the original thread I started when I first did the mod.... Post # 30 has a pin-out description for the relays.

    I think the thread is too old for the videos to be active though....

    I had them on my mirrors and I took them off it really gets to the eyes after a long night of plowing. Just my 2 cents though.
