Yea, I still have my 13 year old pickup with 185k mi. All the inexpensive interior and exterior lamps, except the headlights, are original. If one burns out, they are $2. I think I will just be un-cool let other people pay $10-$60 each for LED lamps that burn out a lot.See that on a lot of tailgate bars too.
Hey Spoonman, Sorry to bring up an old thread!Based on Blue15COloradoLT’s previous post here (http://coloradofans.com/forums/201-...286601-how-add-resistors-led-tail-lights.html)
Black = Negative
Gray = Brake Light / Turn Signal Positive
Orange = Tail Light Positive
Yellow = Reverse light Positive.
So functions will be :
•Dim red running
•Brighter red Brake
•red turn signal (on off)
Hey Spoonman, Sorry to bring up an old thread!
Just to clarify, did you just T-tap the wires based on their label from Anzo & the colored wires blue provided above?
Also, any further updates after another year with the step lights??
Thanks a ton for the detailed write up!
Wow those posi-tap connectors are wicked! They would definitely make it a lot easier to remove if required in the future!Yeah, that is what I did. The turn signal wire ends up not being connected to anything because of the lack of a dedicated turn signal wire. Not sure if Anzo made a revision to remove the wire in later production batches or not.
The only thing I wish I knew back then was that there are those posi-tap connectors. They look to be a less instrusive way to splice into the stock taillight harness with less involvement than the scotchlocks/T-Taps.
Almost two years later and mine are still going. The lenses have yellowed a bit, but im sure I could buff them a bit to get them clear (like restoring yellowed headlights).
One of the lenses is popping off a bit, I need to run a new bead of clear silicone. I see a lot of complaints that they lenses fall off, but I think adding the silicone helps prevent that. Too bad it isnt recommended anywhere else other than my write-up or else those people complaining about it might have been able to avoid the issue.
JP1, those pics look amazing with your canyon lights....
Spoonman, question for you... since you probably done the most research on this.... Is it possible to remove the turn signal function to the brake lights, then have only the anzo act as the turn signal?
you cannot connect the "turn signal" wire on the step to anything.I have read all the posts, well I think I have ... and my brake lights on this are still AMBER. Any new suggestions? Thank you!!
