Hello everyone, this is my first contribution to 4g61t.org.

Hope someone out there besides me likes this look.

Using These: Image


So you'll be getting new housings and can always go back to your old ones, I checked and you can't just switch the clear with the orange plastic, you have to switch the whole assembly.

Cost: $24.99
Materials Needed: Wire Stripper, 2 Feet of Electrical Tape, Phillips Screwdriver
Parts Link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/87-96-PI ... ccessories (I bought mine from this seller)

Step 1: Remove old signals with phillips screwdriver, there are 2 screws on the front of the amber lenses.

Step 2: Cut before the harness that plugs into the housing, I left 2 inches of slack in case I decided to switch back.

Step 3: Strip wires on car end and new housing end, connect both black wires, than connect the green wire (IIRC) with the other color from car. There are only 2 wires associated with the signals, per side.

Step 4: Wedge New Housing Into the bumper. I wedged mine in, I've been driving for years and they havent budged. The act of wedging will not damage paint on bumper.

I am almost 100% sure it comes with bulbs, if not, go to o'reilly/autozone look up front signal bulbs for a 87-96 Nissan D21 pickup. cost shouldnt be more than $4.

If This is in the wrong spot please move me to the right spot. Thanks Everyone!!

isn't it illegal in most states to run anything other than amber/yellow turning signals?.. nice option tho if not.

Yea as long as the bulb flashes yellow than its good. Unless its different from state to state. I don't thing it is tho.

So the original mounting holes don't work? Wouldn't the entire thing vibrate out over time,from road bumps,pot holes etc? I do like the look alot.

I over-looked that step when reading through it myself.... If the factory holes wouldn't work it wouldn't be hard to make new holes.

I've been running the reverse lamp lenses up front for several years.

Image

Of course, I have no idea if they fit in the stock bumper.

Like I said, they wedge in there and literally have not moved in over 2 years. one could take a strip of sheet metal 1"x4" and make a backing for it. But it literally is a perfect fit. I just ordered a new pair for my '92 summit I bought last weekend. I'll maybe edit the write-up with more pictures and some sort of retaining bracket.
