Aftermarket marker lights

Hello all,

During a recent fall which I posted about last week, I broke one of my front turn signals on my 06 T100. After examining the signal, I realized that it was made of plastic (probably why it broke), and very cheaply made. I looked into replacing it, and found that it was actually cheaper for me to buy a pair of aluminum marker lights, than to purchase one of the OEM marker lights. I found that I liked these:

My question is, has anyone used these before? Experiences, quality, etc? Also, are these relatively easy to install? I am not very mechanically inclined, although I have changed the oil, spark plugs, leaky gaskets, etc. I can do simple things, so I am wondering would it be easier for me to just buy and replace the original, or are the aftermarkets pretty easy to install (plug and play)?

Thanks!

They aren't plug and play - you'd have to change the connectors either on the loom or the indicators, although it's not difficult to do. Apart from that it's an easy job - indicator on, bolt over the wires and tighten it up and connect the wires.

I have them on my '09. I am a human of average to low intelligence and less mechanical skill, and they went on pretty easily. I love the way they look vs. stock.
