I agree with fordman75 here. I don't like them back on the cowl due to visiblity/safety. I don't like them mounted on top of the fenders cuz it looks like a tractor. That's ok for me, on the big trucks.
I like the parking lamp conversion or mount on the bumper like amber fog lights.
Thats my 2 cents for you Ray!

Stock park light location

I swapped out dual filament in parking light location due to my trying to keep stock look to my truck. Used amber lights and Dakota rear tail light assemblies.

If you're going for the big truck feel , maybe cowl location is preferred.

Frenched into lower fender might be cool too.

I don't care where you put them, just wanted to say, nice truck. What? Are you trying to collect one of each (F350)? You have two of the best (imho).

I did 5 leds. 2 in the stock location I just bent the brackets to tuck them in closer to the truck. Then put to in the bed rails. And one in the beds bottom bracket centered. 5 should b enough to stop me from getting hit from behind. I would post a pic but I have nit figured out how to do it.

Now, here's the only turn signal that I would mount on the fender.



Wonder where I could find a couple of mortar rounds with that kind of patina.
