Rear turn signals

I've had a few negative comments about my rear turn signals. In front I converted the the park lights and in the rear I used two F ord pickup marker lights on either side. I was considering putting lights in the ends of the rolls on top of the frame rails.

I was wondering if anyone has found a good supplier of such or an idea of what works well.

Here is a copy of an E-mail I received. Someone on this board has these LEDs in the roll. The supplier is

As follows;

Believe it or not the Led lights will work on 6 volts and they are not substantially dimmer

I am looking at a pair of your bed roll lights in LED. My questionMy 46 Chevrolet truck is running on 6 volt. Do you have a set of bed roll lights that will work for the old 6 volt system?

The led lights are available for the bed rolls but are expensive. I turned a couple of dowels on a wood lathe, a piece of closet rod would work, and drilled a hole in the center. I then fitted a pair of led marker lights from Advanced Auto in the holes' painted the wood black and ran wires down the standard pocket to the turn signal switch. I pushed the assemblies into the bed with a little black silicon for glue. They are not even noticeable when off and very bright when turning. Less than 12 bucks spent.

Wow, talk about resurrection of an old thread! 14 years, that’s gotta be a new record. Post a photo so we can see your creative idea.🛠
