Sucks. Could you do me a favor and modify the title of your thread. It makes it sound like we did something wrong :) When you've admitted we didn't.

Deposits are required, it ensures they get their product back is all. You sure it's not just a loose wire or something cut?

I tried to see if I could modify it for you but I really couldn't figure out how. Wonder if it's because of the age of the thread? All ears if you can show me how.

I checked around to see if I could solve it myself, and I got it to act a little bit better but not exactly right. Sent Morimoto videos of the situation and they were at a loss, which is why they said I need replacements. Said they couldn't figure out why it would act this way. I was hoping to be able to fix it on my own.

To change a title, go to your first post. On the top/right side above your post, you'll see an UNWATCH button followed by 3 dots with a drop down arrow. Click this and click EDIT THREAD and you can change the title.

On an older thread you have to ask a mod to change the title. You can only edit the title if it's a real fresh post.

They must give you a few options we don't have. My Raptor Assault thread is from May, and I couldn't edit it if I wanted to. From what I have seen if the thread is more than a few hours old the title locks in. As it gets older you can't edit anything in the post. @Big Blue

Yes, Vendors and Supporting Members have more authority and you are correct that after a certain time frame, some aspects of a post are not changeable.

@PD1744, send me a PM and let me know what you want the title changed to. :favorites13:

Thread title has been amended. Shoutout to @Big Blue .

Got into it a little over the weekend. Got it acting sort of like I needed it, but not really. Got the DRL to ignite with marker, but then turn signal started acting wonky. Gave up. Asked Morimoto to set up the replacement on Monday. They had it ready to go and I placed the order on Tuesday. Parts arrived at the house on WEDNESDAY!

Not as salty as I thought I would be about the amber marker. I still prefer the smoked on my black truck, but I don't hate these:

Had them installed and adjusted in a blink. Pretty sure I can do it blindfolded at this point. Also, getting the amber corner marker set now, saves me from having to do it later when the next one breaks.

BUT, I also made a discovery. My problem this time (C-Light not igniting with the marker in a parking light scenario) was not the light fixture, but actually somewhere along the added circuit. So if anybody experiences this issue, start by changing out the fuse tap circuit. Didn't take a picture of them on the truck. Whoops.

Y'all ain't gonna believe this. The saga continues.
So installed last Wednesday, return label issued Thursday, I shipped the old ones back Friday, they received it by Monday. Here we are Friday morning and the passenger side headlight didn't come on on my drive in. Same as my first two driver side headlights, but I've never had an issue with my passenger side. My deposit refund hasn't even hit yet.
So yeah...

So if you're keeping count, I'm on my 5th drivers side assembly and soon to be 3rd passenger side. I'll dig into it and check the connections when I get some time, but I'll be out of town for the next week or so, so it'll have to wait.
