Has anyone done this?

I took some front turn signals and placed them at the rear. Hooked up the running light wiring and the turn signal wires accordingly. Then cut some red lences from trailer light lences drilled holes for the holding screws. Now I have dual purpose light at the rear as the front.

I I bought a Priority Module that converts the turn signals to running lights. It also flashes 3 times when I first apply the brakes. Then I put LED rear light to take some pressure off the stator.

The only problem may be state regulations. Turn signals are usually required to be Amber, brake lights required to be red.
You may get ticketed for red turn signals.

I think thats only front turn signals that are required to be amber, rear can be either red or amber. The reason is that there are several makes and models of cars/trucks with red.

Even the brake light can be any color from amber to red. the rear running light must be red. Turn signal can be red. I inspect auto mobile at work.
However; for my own use I would prefer red brake lights.

I think your right. I see cars all the time with red directionalís in the rear. I have had mine for over a year and have never been questioned.

I did the same thing. Installed a set of front signals on the back hooked up the factory wires for the turn signals and added a wire to the running light wiring of the turn signal light. I have smoke lenses with red LED's and added a 4" long LED under the reflector of the tool box and two LED license plate bolts. I have a clear tail light lens with two 36 LED bulbs. It's really bright back there.
