Once you do one thing, it keeps going. Eventually you do slow down though.. haha

Glad we could help here.

I wish the LED's that came with my taillight solutions kit were as bright or that I could drive with my reverse on all the time.

I ordered the front markers from amazon... how do you install these? Please don't tell me it has to be done thru that small hole on the wheel well?

I attached a few shots for those in doubt. (taken with my cell)

thanks for the last picture, it confirmed what i was wanting to do also

as for switching out the main reverse, did you removed the 2 circle like adapters with a flathead on each light housing to accessing the bulbs?

No, you remove the holding clips, pull the housing out, and turn the bulb plugs out... it's really easy.

Nope, you're good to replace the DRL's with a 3157 equivalent.

Re: Putco LED conversion list

Is there a DIY with pics for the drl install on the drivers side? I've upgraded every other light to LEDs but can't for the life of me figure out how to get to the drivers side drl, although it seems like it should be easy reading through this thread. Any help greatly appreciated...

You need to pull the air intake box to gain access.

Re: Putco LED conversion list

JRue, to get to driver side DRL, you first need to remove the air filter box in front of it. Unlatch top, remove filter, remove any tube tie downs and c-clamps, and lift up firmly on bottom of air filter box which sits down on two rubber posts and bushings.
