You've got a good looking truck Sous!

I finally ordered some replacement dually flare markers since I've been missing the passenger side from the previous owners goof up. Hopefully these fit as good as factory. I think the smoked lenses will look good with the black truck, and the smoked lenses in the mirrors. I may end up doing smoked cab lights too

I got the marker lights on the mirrors wired up. It's worth say I g that these mirrors have both marker and signal lights. I'll have to get a picture, but I'm not real impressed with the color of the marker. It seems very white, and doesn't match my bright LED cab lights at all. I'm going to try to figure out how to get the bulb out (if it's replaceable) and put a brighter, Amber bulb behind it. That should get it closer. Still happy with the purchase though. I was going to wire the park and signal lights together, so they came on together as a marker and forgo the signal, but the lens for the signal is angled more to the side and didn't look right. Heat will be hooked up once I source a timed switch. I'm posting the wiring for the mirror connector here for future reference in a search.

Smoked markers came in yesterday and look awesome. Much better than the red and yellow and now I have light on both sides. Quality of the lights seemed very good, fit was tight, and the bulbs they came with are fairly bright.

Just to add to the earlier post about the color of the marker lights in the mirrors, I was told by the company that the bulbs weren't replaceable. That is false. The bulbs are replaceable the same as the factory mirrors. There is a tab behind the mirror that releases the lens and you can get to both bulbs. I'm going to order some Amber leds for it and they should be good to go!

Well, my injector fund is taking another hit. This time to the tune of about $1100. One of my calipers failed yesterday, so it's time for a complete brake overhaul. 4 new calipers, rotors pads, and soft brake lines. Plus I'm breaking down and taking her to the stealership to have my leaking pinion seal replaced. Hopefully then I'll be good for a while!

I had to have my pinion seal replaced as well, but have a small family owned automotive shop available to me. They do great work, are very honest and their prices are very reasonable.

Do you need to replace all of the calipers, are they that bad? Do you know why it failed, could be just the line deteriorated internally and kept pressure on the caliper.
