side markers with new fender flares

I am putting new fender flares on, and I was wondering what y'all did with the side marker light. The new fender flares don't have a side marker, so I'm kinda lost as to what to do with the wiring/light fixture... Any suggestions? Just curious what others have done. Thank you!

I got these or something like these and put them in the little hole in the front of the fender well. I had to add a resistor to keep them from fast blinking. super easy to do. Just cut the connector off the stock wiring.

If you want to do away with it completely there is another plug further up the light's wiring. IIRC it's just behind the grill. Just unplug it there and then you won't have any dangling lights or wires. I did this when trimming my stock fenders.

x2.

Plus used to electrical tape to seal up the plug openings. Been that way since 2011.

Very Cool! Thanks for the tip! I'm tackling the fenders this weekend, I'll let you know how it goes!

Just to update y'all, I ended up popping the stock side marker light housings out of the stock fenders and rigged them up in the wheel wells. They are tucked in pretty good, we'll see how long they last!
