ARB Bumper Running lights/ blinker lights Q's

So, I installed the ARB bumper tonight. Not too bad of an install, but did take me about 4 hours.

Next up is the marker lights/ turn signals. I am lost on this one and hope one of you can help me out.

The ARB directions for wiring in those markers/ turn signals are garbage. The black and white instructions aren;t helping either. ..not to mention it's 1am.

The distructions show the engine bay and wiring bassackwords.....I think a RH drive model or something. Anyhow, I'm not sure on what to splice together to make these work.

Anyone done the install? I want to get this rig back together in the AM before our 101 degree day.

So here's what I have:
Red and black wire coming off of each arb marker light.


The pssd Jeep marker light has a black wire and two white w/tan wires.
The drsd Jeep Marker light has a black wire and two white w/green stipe wires.

I Have the arb harness run down the pssd and stubbed out by the Jeep pssd marker light. There is a yellow, yellow w/black stripe, and black wire sitting there.

Than there is the rest of the harness...just long enough to reach the drsd. There is a green wire, green w/ black stripe, and black. I'm assuming this has to go to the drsd...even though the directions show that tapping into a white/tan wire.


As I understand this, the Jeep Marker's three wires are:
black= ground
middle white/tan stripe= running light power
far right white/tan stripe = turn signal

So what do I tap together to make this work?

tried running it hot, but ir ran HOT! LOL.

So I wne tback the drawing board. TEST LIGHT!!

So, you do run everything down the pssd. the yellow w/ black stripe ties into the factory pssd marker/ turn lamp. You have ground, than middle is running light, and far right white w/ tan strip is turn. that it was I hooked into. than I ran the solid yellow to arb red wire to marker light and than black to black.

repeater on other side.

so you have your option of running this as either a marler light or turn signal. I decided to run this as a turn signal only since my Denver daily driving would befefit more for a large blinker than a running light.

in case anyone reads this and is wondering if a 2.5" terflex coil lift and 35's wil lwork with this bumper. YES, it will flex up all the way. you DO have to leave out the bumper wing supports or inc eyou disconnect, your tire will stuff into that part. I don;t really see much more rigidity from this part, but I am goiing to put these two supports into a press and bend them back the other way and see if they will work.

Anyone else install this bumper without them? just curious.

pics...btw, the two front "bumpers" that stick out are coming off. Fabbing u two metal plates that will bolt in place. Studs welded into the back side, so they'll be smooth, no bolt heads.

These are the Bushwackers. i;m still undecided on teh look, however, I am putting a bigger lift on, but keeping the 35's. I may end up going back to stock flares or maybe the pocket style? I haven;t seen that combo yet either.

thanks for the compliment.

I just followed the instructions, but those splice clips they give are crap...Mine worked fine, but my initial instal I fucked up the seals on the turnsignals... get a voltmeter and the colors will make sense.
