turn signals

is there an easier way to get to the turn signals in the obs than to remove the batteries? I'm stumped on how to remove the batteries from the truck after unhooking the cables.

For unhooking the batteries if you look down in between the batteries and radiator core support there is a small piece with a 5/16" Im pretty sure bolt that is bolted to the battery tray and that is what holds the batteries down. Just undo the bolt and pull that and the piece holding the batteries down and then you can pull the batteries out. Otherwise you just have to really work on wedging your arm down there to pull the bulb out

you could just use a deep well socket 12mm i think and just put your hand down inbetween the batts and core support. i have done two sets of clear corners once on the 95 and now on the 97 and i didn't remove the batteries

Oh I didn't even think of that. There weren't any instructions to install these and I'm pretty mechanically challenged...

how long did it take to install them that way?

I agree,

i just replaced both my lights cuz i hit a few things i shouldnt of (damn ditches haha) there is pre cut holes in the front clip u have to feel for 2 studs take the nuts off then take the top screws out on the trim then disconnect the wires and take the 2 screws out of the bottom of the turn signal, its quick just becareful takin the nuts off. i used a small magnet on the end of deep well to make sure i didnt drop them.
