The blinker version requires you to tap into your turn signals & run the wires up to your 3rdBL.
It's not that bad, just a pain to run the wires.

Little update:

I have one "buggman" special version all red 3rdBL nearly complete as well as a cargo light version.
Working on a 63 led all red version now too.

Going from cargo to an all red one is probably the simplest of all. Just unplug your old connector from the truck & plug-in the OEM connector from my led modded 3rdBL & you're done. (Don't forget the 2 mounting screws )

Going from all red to cargo can sometimes require an additional wire if the truck isn't pre-wired for cargo lights (some are, some aren't)

The led's are very bright, especially in the all red 63 led version, and they run much cooler than any incandescent bulb.

So... to answer your question: Yes it will work, no mods needed.

And, Yes you could drop in some plug-in led's into an all red 3rdBL (providing you splice in 2 additional bulb sockets to the original wiring as the all red ones only have one bulb socket where the cargos have 3 bulb sockets... they all have the 3 locations for the bulb sockets, but the all red ones don't have the 2 extra sockets already) and it would likely be brighter than incandescent bulbs, or at a minimum more vibrant red.

i spliced the wires for the cargo and t tapped them to the brake light so all three bulbs would light up red when i stepped on the brake, so i was just wondering if yours would be plug and play seeing as how i used to have one with the cargos, or would you say just do the led bulbs seeing as how itd be easier for me lol

What's the buggman special edition? Is it mild wild or wicked?

Here's a quick video I did a while ago... it's just the hazard lights, but when you use the turn signals, the left / right side blinks accordingly.



It's very bright, the red center section is about the same as the cargo light version, and the turn signal outer sections are a bit brighter.

They look almost white in the vid, but they're vibrant red... stupid camera doesn't do a great job with super bright light.

It could be my camera again, it captures at like 15 fps & when I convert/edit the .avi file to a 29fps .mpg file, sometimes the speed is off like that.

It actually blinks at the normal speed.

With a turn signal on and the brakes on one side blinks and the other stays lit like the center correct?
