blinkers for tube or flat fenders

I have the Smitty XRC front fenders. Was wondering where some of you are finding the tiny turn signals that mount in the small forward facing hole in the fenders.

That's what I've been considering since I cant find the teeny tiny ones I really want. Any specific Blinker you used? How does it mount once the Holes are cut in the grille?

Use a stock JK blinker assembly. They kind of pop fit in to the hole and they use the TJ plug, no wiring to be done.

I have a pair of the led's that fit in the small holes of the tube fenders but decided to go with the JK turn signals in the grill whenever I get mine finished and installed.
I'm also doing this for side marker/turn signals.





PM me if you want the small led's that I bought for the small holes in the tube fenders.

I did JK signals in my grill as well...i'll post a pic a bit later (gonna wash it and stuff today due to the mods i've done over the last 3-4 weeks)

jk's are 2 and 1/8" and fit tight...no splicing or wiring either.

Is it legal to not have side markers ? Not sure about the law.
Ive seen a couple of your posts. Looks like youve had a lot of work done recently. looks like a very capable rig.

I haven't been snagged by the local police yet And cut my fenders and relocated the front turn signals myself haha so until I hear otherwise there won't be side markers installed

I'm actually not sure of the law here in Colorado but I haven't been hassled about them as of current so well see if that holds true. I also have my windshield tinted 35% which definitely isn't legal but they haven't messed with me for that yet either...just gonna keep hoping for the best.

Thanks man...it's definitely been a trip over the last few weeks lol. I'm surprised Im still making rent haha.

I cleaned it up today but didnt have time to snap any pics but ill try to do that sometime tomorrow...the new parts since that last pic taken are:

Heavy duty over knuckle steering system
front chromoly axle shafts
rear ford 8.8 with lsd
4.88 gears front and rear
upper adjustable rear arms
upper adjustable front arms
fixed lower rear arms
fixed lower front arms
rear adjustable track bar
front adjustable track bar
slip yoke eliminator
custom cv shaft
extended brake lines
and new front 4" lift coils (the axle lifted me another inch so i got 4" coils to level it - which kind of worked but not completely, still 1/4" off but that should settle with a new rear number and spare tire)

Next up I think I'll be going with a tummy tuck skid, high clearance gas tank skid, and cable shifter...possibly a winch, winch bumper, and new battery...or new rear bumper with drop down tailgate conversion.

Again, I appreciate the comments

LED lights off ebay

I got the same fenders and picked up a couple simple 3/4 inch round LEDs off ebay for about 10 bucks each. They aren't the most obvious lights, but then again they're 1/4 the size of the original marker lights, but they serve their purpose....the tube fenders look gnarly though and that's all that matters

Thanks!

Living in okie-la-homa, I haven't had reverse lights, a 3rd brake light, plate lights, or side markers for over 2 years of daily driving and haven't had a single complaint.
Oh, and my tires stick outside the flares I don't have by about 10 inches on either side... Ha!

Looks great man...wish I had 37's on mine but I'm only sitting on 35s at the moment. Those 37s are super expensive haha

Same for me with fenders...zero flare for me and mine stick out well beyond my tubes.
