94 turn signal conversion

Hello. I am installing a new bumper on my 94. This means I have to move the blinkers from the stock bumper to the grille (like a 95). Does anybody know where to get the lights? More importantly, is it as easy as just pluging the old turn signal into the new one? Thanks in advance.

search. ECR explained it a month or so ago. You just use the lower parking lights. I think it is just cut and splice the wires.

(from an old post)
You'll need 2 stop/tail lamp assemblies from a Series III/ Euro Defender (part# RTC5523) and 2 amber lenses for the same (part # 589285).

Then remove the factory turn signal and the lower marker light.
Then blend the wiring, putting the parking light wiring (red w/ black stripe) to the red wire on the new lamp. Then take the turn signal wire (green w/red stripe LH) and (green w/white stripe RH) and attach it to the green w/ purple wire on the lamp assembly.
Then attach the black ground wire to the black ground wire on the lamp.
Install it in the 90 just like the one you took out. Chuck the red lens and install the amber lens and now you will still have all 4 marker lights and the lower one will flasher brighter (and at the normal speed) when you turn.

If your 90 has the modern black backed lights you will have to do some wire cutting and you should paint the white base of the new lamp black so it looks the same when you install it.

I did this and it works great

Dennis, When you do this, take step by step pix and post it on the Smaller projects forum.
I am thinking about the same thing, but want to put spots in the bumper (next on the list once I have saved up for the LED conversion).

I elected to get yellow bulbs (advance) for the bottom lenses. Then put clear lenses over them.
Gives a little different look

These part numbers; are they through land rover or another vendor?
