    Does anyone know if they make clear covers for the turn signals on the side of the blazer? i am looking at an 89 and like the idea of the clear covers. Thanks.

    I don't know but they're illegal. They do make them for rear taillights.

    I'm sure if you guys go down to the local riceboy shop they could steer you in the right direction. The problem is, I doubt there's a big market for ricer accessories for 2nd Gen K5s.

    What's with all the "clear accessory" questions lately?/forums/images/icons/tongue.gif Sheesh.......I personally think they look stupid and I'm quite happy with the fact that the "Fart Cars" have the mrket cornered on this clear crap.........

    I kinda like the "shaved look", but the clear stuff is for the rice burners

    Try changing the bulbs from orange to clear.
    For the front covers

    Call up 4-wheelparts. They have them I got mine from there. They look good. It also comes with yellow bulbs so you are still legal at night. I don't know the # right off hand. I ordered mine off their website.

    Okay, I may have my wires crossed. I went looking for it, but all I can find is "vehicles made after this date." I swore the CHP instructor said white bulb, but he will be back next weekend. I will get clarification.

    Let's see - that I know of, Ford corner markers through 97 (99 for ¾ and one tons) used an amber bulb. GM front signals used an amber bulb through 91 on Blazers and 'Burbs. Per Arizona law, nobody cares what color the bulb on the side markers is as long as they show amber <a target="_blank" href=http://www.azleg.state.az.us/ars/28/00931.htm>http://www.azleg.state.az.us/ars/28/00931.htm</a> One of the guys I work with had clear taillights and had to pull them due to the fact that they reflected white instead of red. I think that's where the trouble with them is, they either don't have reflectors or reflect white.

    I found the part # from 4-wheelparts(APC 40.3028.CL). That is for the front set. Price was $41.95
