My inserts wern't plug n play with my eBay replicas. It wasn't on Chris' end rather the mirrors had a regular rubber 194 socket that the OEM mirrors don't have. I decided to strip the green and white wires on the mirrors themselves and crimp them to Chris' wires. Overall, it was a fairly easy instal with my only hicup being the wires not being plug n play.
Thanks again, Chris!!

Hi, SnowBlazer. My Mirrors are the same as yours and I'm wanting to get the LED Strips as well. Is the white wire the ground wire? And does Chris LED Stripes come with Black & Red wires?

Sweet man. I'm loving mine, maybe it's just me but I feel as if people behind me notice me better with them as opposed to not having them at all, especially at night. These inserts are brighter than your 50/50 strip you'd buy at AutoZone.
I digress...

The white wire should be the ground but I can't say for sure as I didn't peel back any of Chris' insulation to see if the wires were twisted around each other. All I could see was where the insulation met the insert. And what you see to the right of my hand are the wires from Chris' inserts that were untouched (wiring wise) by me. So the short answer to your question is yes on both accounts.

Ok, i just didn't want to wire it up backwards and short-out or blow anything in the electrical system. Thanks for the info.

Anytime, bud. :tiphat:
Before you crimp or solder, make sure the polarity is correct. You can do this easily by twisting the wires together. If you do happen to reverse the polarity, it won't do anything more than pop a fuse, worst case scenario.

Just put in my order for a set in White for my Amber Lens. Still trying to get my hands on the Clear Lens type/style and when I do I'll probably be ordering another set. I had some concerns before ordering and ibprobably made his ears bleed but he had no problem answering/helping. I will post pics after i receive and install. Thanks Chris.

Hey, everyone. Like I was telling Chris, I'm thinking about doing like some with Wheels/Rims (Winter/Summer Sets) and run Amber in the Fall/Winter and the Clear Lens in the Spring/Summer with both equipped with his Inserts....also has anyone tried to add an additional Insert (or template) to the end of the Lens above the clearing?...for a Bowtie Logo or SS Emblem to light up on the ground beneath it while the Turn Signal flashes?

People have done puddle lights in the mirrors, but I think the logo lights have only been done on the doors, or under the rocker panels that I know of. I think the logo lights might be a little too tall to fit inside the lenses without some serious modding.

The LED Inserts was a breeze to install, removal/install of the Mirrors Covers and the Amber Lens took the majority of the time/install. I will post pics of them in action/operating as soon as possible.

Did you modify your dust cap to fit or just scrap it?

Hello dmanns67, if you are referring to the factory Black Insert and Chrome Deflector I popped them out and keep them. TXBLAZER'S Inserts design would require approximately 2 inches of standing water in the Lens before it would come into contact with the Inserts so it wasn't a concern for me. Plus that end of the Lens is flush against the Mirror Body/Housing.

They are pretty BRIGHT compared to the factory setup. I maybe wishing I went with the Amber (Front & Rear) Color instead of the White Color. Even with the Amber Lens they are super bright and almost admit a White/Clear look when blinking but I will give it a few more miles/days to determine what I think. Thanks

Question:
Would it be possible to make them like this, add an extra wire that connects to park light and when park lights are on the LED's are on with let say between 10-20% capacity so it wont blind the driver?
Turn on turn signal and they are in full operation.

Similar to a 5/21 watt bulb if you know what i mean?

Question:
what you would want to do is buy an adjustable PWM module. You can get them on ebay, amazon, etc. Tap into the trailer parking light wire in the bundle of wires running just above the brake pedal.

Run a connection from the trailer parking light into the PWM module, split the output, and run a line to each door. Using diodes to prevent feedback, splice the parking light signal into the positive source for the LED strips.

Turn on the parking lights, then adjust the PWM module until the LEDs are at a comfortable brightness level. Then sit back and enjoy.

Yeah I get it but I'm old and lazy so it would be more convenient for me to have it already built in the set :thankyou:
