Aesthetically there are two things that urk me about the 2nd gen truck. 1) Orange dash illumination. There's fixes for that and I'm in the middle of dealing with it. 2) Red rear turn signals North America is the only place on the planet that allows this. The US, Mexico, and Canada. That's it. Everywhere else on the globe, orange turn signals are required in the rear. And even more annoying to me is when vehicles like the X use a separate bulb and tail light area for the turn signal and its STILL red! From a personal perspective, I think it looks better and is safer. There's been studies on it and crap, but what it comes down to is that I think it looks better. So I started racking my brain on how to fix the issue. The solution dawned on me while shopping for replacement LED bulbs. Switchbacks in the reverse lights! You don't ever use your turn signals and reverse lights at the same time. And these bulbs can be both white and orange. Problem there is that it needs a dual filament socket to work. And the reverse bulb is a single filament 921. Enter the 7443. The smallest dual filament bulb you can get. But it still won't fit in the same size hole. But that's what a dremel is for. I bought a pair of 7443 sockets from eBay and a pair of 7443 switchback bulbs. You can see the size difference between the stock socket And the replacement 7443 I began with a standard 2nd gen tail light. In this case, a used ebay purchase. Start by cutting the lip from around the reverse light socket. From here I shoved a microfiber cloth into the socket to keep the black plastic flecks from getting down into the light. As you can see, replacement 7443 socket doesn't quite fit. Enter the dremel. A few modifications to the 7443 socket. Cutting all the useless little fins off the sides so that it fits better in the hole. And we have success! There's just enough plastic left in there to allow the clips on the new socket to bind in place. It's an awesome fit. And so tight that there's no concern about moisture. Next is to modify the wiring harness to work with the new configuration. Since I'm moving the turn signals to the reverse light location it makes the stock turn signals non functional. So not to abandon it, I repurposed to a dedicated brake light. I cut off the stock reverse socket and just the green wire from the original turn signal socket. Leaving enough to solder to. Soldered on the ground and reverse wire for the new socket to the stock wiring. Green is ground and red is reverse. Just like the factory stuff. Solder the input side of the turn signal wire to the black/white wire on the new socket and heat shrink/tape everything up. Extend the green wire from the old turn signal socket and tie it in with the green/yellow wire of the brake light circuit. Cut the green/yellow wire and splice in the new green wire. Heat shrink and tape everything. It's ready to go. The harness on both sides is identical. So on to installation. I took some pictures of the bare harness to better illustrate function since cell phone cameras get washed out from the LEDs. Running lights: Reverse lights: Brake lights: Turn signal: Remove stock tail light, disassemble back interior, unplug harness for tail light. Install modified tail light. Look at that orange goodness! A final install picture on both sides. Overall, I'm very pleased with the way this came out. If I had to complain about something it's that the reflectors aren't tuned for the longer bulb. So the visible output of the reverse lights is not as much as with a replacement 921. But there's nothing I can do about that. A nice thing about this mod is that it's perfectly and easily reversible. If you bought replacement housings, most of them come with wiring harnesses. So you should have a complete stock set of tail lights and harnesses still. If for any reason you need to switch it back? No big deal.
