I'm getting another converter box sent to me from JC Whitney. I'm not getting any voltage on the output on the right side, I've got good voltage going in. I'll get back when everything is in.

Let me know (PM is fine) if you run into any other snags (I'd also be curious to know how you wired things, if you feel like typing that much ).

Can you give me a little better wiring schematic? I guess I'm getting lost when you said "running them the opposite". Do you mean that after you make the initial connection of the positive wire to the brown wire for running lights, you run a wire from the turn signal positive to the mirror light negative? Just a little slow on the upkeep here i guess...

C-betr mirrors, they are pretty handy, do a search and find a FTE vendor.

It must have been tweeked because they replaced the 2wd frame with a 1997 Ranger 4x4 frame, got a 1997 5.0 AWD Explorer and put all of the running gear on the 97 4x4 Ranger frame and reinstalled the body on the frame, thus the "frame off" show quality restoration. They did good, cause I got it for a good price and love it!!!

I know this is an old thread but couldn't you just tap into the mirror wire harness to add the turn signal? I have an 04 EB that had the non-towing mirrors with the turn signal that I replaced with standard tow mirrors with no lights. I would think I would just have to ID the wire in that group and then hook up the new light and be off to the races, right? Or did I miss something?

This is such an old thread... I completely missed it when it was going on.

Hey Chris... I really like that image of you in that mirror cover, but you sure have gained weight since then, haven't you, and I never noticed before how short your legs are!

LOL! I seem to have that fun-house mirror thing happening in that pic don't I?! If my legs where that short in real life, I'd be a tripod!

I knew I would be inviting some type of "braggart" response from you on that note, but you have to admit that even a tripod with legs that short isn't much to brag about!

Sorry, Chris, but I just couldn't resist.

the short answer is yes, I've done it to almost all my rice rockets in the past!

Dont know if any of you are still around. I am wanting to mod my mirrors, but not this way. I want to shorten the mirrors and narrow my truck 6 inches.

So while yo uhad your mirrors apart, do you recall seeing a way to shorten the telescopic tubes?

I have not figured out how to pop the mirror lens off yet. If i can take it aprt and shorten them, and still have the ability to extend them , they would be perfect for me.

This definitely like a simpler way of wiring things. Just to make sure I have some of it correct. First off, it seems like the front turn signal bulb under the headlight might be a single element bulb that burns steady with the running lights and then blinks brighter with the turn signal? I didn't notice that it was a 2 element bulb but I am not certain of this. Also I am confused about what makes them blink opposite of the truck signals? Does the JC Whitney led bulbs have 2 hot wires....one for steady lights and one for blinking lights? Any more input would be greatly appreciated as this looks like a simple mod, except for the wiring through the mirror thing...Dave
