The two holes I drilled are behind the out side tail lights against the opposite wall and about 1 from the corners. On the drivers side it has to be done from underneath and on the passenger side from inside the storage. Be careful, as there are running light wires on both sides. The running lights (tail) on and with right blinker. The pictures just dont do it justice.

Billy,

Great idea, especially when towing a vehicle, my towed Jeep somewhat hides the brake/turn lights on the RV and the Jeep lights aren't that bright.  I will definitely be doing this mod.

Thanks for the photos and install descripition, your lights look perfect, are they 12 inches long?

You mentioned doing front turn signals, I assume you mean on the side in the front.  I think that would be a good idea to let those that are beside you know that you want to turn or change lanes.  What do you have in mind?  I see the new PCs have turn indicators on the side mirrors; but as a mod, I think putting a light on the side of the front fender would be easiest.

I remember Bob, the lights are 15  1/2 ".  I am not sure  where the front will go. On the class a they were just behind the front wheel. It was on fiberglass. This time led's for sure but where?

I plan to place my dual brightness Amber LEDs just ahead of the front wheel on the fender above the bumper, where it'll be easy to run the wires to from the front 'Park'/signals (I got those from TMI on eBay).

With all the DA drivers on the road these days you can't be too well lit (within reason).

That is what I was thinking also.  Post pictures and info when you do it.

Has anyone been "inside" the mirrors. I would love to mount the turn signals on the side of the mirror? Do not know about running the wires. Heck I don't even know what kind of a light I would get? any ideas?
