Nice mod. I’m about to do something similar. I ordered an LED replacement for the original from Australia and am going to swap the wire for the bumper light with the corner light. That way the corner light becomes a turn signal and the bumper light becomes a running light.
I want to do the exact same thing. Can the wires just be swapped with new connectors from one light location to the other light location and be good to go?

Thanks for any input!

Added the all brown Mosley seat covers to the rear seats, turned out to be a decent match to my Scheel-Manns, close enough to the other 40 shades of brown to satisfy me on my adventure truck.

I continue to be impressed with the leather seats from Mosley, I have had many years experience with Katzkin, DK Schweizer, etc. and these are as high quality as you can get along with great customer service!

Thanks! They are Scheel-Mann seats in the front, several great threads regarding, spendy but worth it if you spend alot of time in your 80.

This one is built for cross country trips and long days on the trail. My aging body appreciates them!

My other 80’s are short trippers and kept stock or with some new covers from Mosley.

Very cool, I want to do the same but run a switch back bulb so with the clear corners it will be wht with the running lights on and switch to amber when signaling. Have that on my truck, it looks good!

The Lutz Auto speedo correction box is the bees knees. No wires to cut or splice, and nothing to disassemble - simple plug and play, and it's stupid easy to adjust. It's adjustable in 0.5% increments so you get the dead-nuts accurate speedometer/odometer, and your transmission shift points will feel like they should.

Agreed! Used it on mine and verifed with a GPS its only about 1/2 a MPH off! Awesome upgraqde is your running 35's like me!
