Yeah it's a nice mod. I did mine this week and took a few pics. The top= brakes, middle= turn signals, and all four are park lights.

Stock only uses the top for park lights.

Before


After






I was thinking of doing a few extra pairs of circuit boards if anyone is interested. Whether you don't have the time, or you aren't handy with a soldering gun....shoot me a PM and let me know if you want this done.

Looks great! That came out a little different than mine

Couple of questions / observations.
1) The TB is NOT a compact car
2) Do you have LED bulbs? If so, what kind?
3) I noticed when the runnig lights are not on, your mirror signal flashes the same as the rear. When running light are on, it is opposite. Not that it's bad, but do you know why this is?
4) You have the double turn signals. Nice touch!


Here's mine:

3) I noticed when the running lights are not on, your mirror signal flashes the same as the rear. When running light are on, it is opposite. Not that it's bad, but do you know why this is? Actually it is whenever the brake lights are on.... there is a relay that the turn lights activate during braking and pulses the lights
4) You have the double turn signals. Nice touch! ...and double brakes.... Thanks

Chris

thanks again guys....

Looks nice!
I am curious how you did the quad brake lights and turn signals as well?
Did you do it at the BCM or Taillight?
I would think you could do it the same way as the running light mod, add a few more wires. However, when you hit the brakes and turn the blinker on, how does it know which one to do?

Any help would be appreciated

Derek

i did mine at the taillights.... i added relays (like how a trailer module would work) the signals turn on relays (one for brake and one for turn)

thinking about it now if you have towing package on your truck the wires are already there....

let me know if you need more info on this...

Yep, mine has the towing package. Once it gets back from the shop (see thread on servo install) I will have to look into this more. I don't suppose you have a wiring diagram or pictures of how yours is set up?

Thanks
