Turn Signal Installation
One of the first things I did when I made my Rhino street legal (I live in Arizona) was install turn signals. They are not required but are sure nice when someone is tailgating you-- a common practice in AZ. Reading this board I have noticed that a lot of guys are installing the 4-wire turn signals instead of the 7-wire turn signals. The difference is the 7-wire can be incorporated into the existing rear brake lights while the 4 wire needs all separate turn signal lights front and rear. The Grote 48272 universal turn signal assembly is either 4 or 7 wire and is the one I used in my Rhino. I am not sure if that part number comes with the wiring harness or not, but you will need the turn signal assembly, the wiring harness that plugs into it, a three prong flasher, two front turn signal lights, and some wire and crimps. In order to incorporate the rear brake lights for turn signals you need to splice into the brake light wire AT THE REAR (the brake light switch won't work) and run three wires up to the front to tie them into the turn signal harness. The rest is pretty simple following the turn signal installation instructions. If you have the '08 LED rear lights you will have to use an LED compatable turn signal flasher or they won't blink.
