Front Mini Lite Side Markers

Hello, can anybody recommend a pair of LED amber 3 wire side markers? Looking to replace the factory ones. Thanks.

3 wires? Do they also blink for turn signals?

They don't but the plan is to convert them.

You will probably have to research a truck lighting catalog from a company such as GROTE. If I remember correctly, the only clearance lights that are allowed to flash with turn signals are the amber lights located midway on the trailer length.

Add a matching light below the existing one.

I've already done some research on the subject and I'm not really concerned about the legality side. Accordion to what the Washington State Department of Transportation has told me there is no issue converting my front markers to turn signals if they are amber in color and fully functional as both. They do have to be asymmetrical on both sides and within a certain specified height. The amber lights midway on the trailer apply to trailers over 30ft long and I believe even then it doesn't state it can't also be a blinker. If I’m ever towing out of state and get pulled over by the side marker police well, I guess I’ll just have to deal with it. I think Jayco does this and calls it JaySmart.

I'll look into GROTE. Thanks...

Thanks, I had thought about it but do not want to go that route. I've found some markers on Amazon that would work but wanted to see if anyone had any personal recommendations.
