I think the ones on the front part of the mirrors would look pretty good. I've seen a few member put lights on that side of their mirrors and they come out nice. I'm not quite sold on the ones under the doors yet. For street rides, I think on some trucks they look great and really complement the theme of the truck, but your ride looks a little more trail/utility than street with the M/Ts, Tow Mirrows, and slight lift, which kinds of messes with what I am used to seeing. However, with that said, you may be onto the next fad as well. I hope that helps!

It is my firm opinion that the mirror lights would look sharp and the rocker panel lights would look completely ghetto. That's my two cents worth of input.

For whatever reason I can't see your sketch. But from the replies I gather you want to put lights either under your mirrors or on the rocker panels. I like the idea of the "puddle light" on the mirror. I like it cause if you are playing off road you can turn them on, open the door and have some more useable light that can be moved around a little bit by just swinging the door into that general direction. I am not a big fan of the rocker lights. Looks good on big rigs not so much on pick up trucks.

I pretty much concur with the common consensus here. The mirror lights are something I'me keeping at the back of my head thanks to Jaele and his posts. However, I don't think the rocker lights really fit your truck. That being said, I think it's great you're trying random ideas. Keep going like that and you'll find something unique that does look great.

I like the ones on the mirrors. I actually saw a newer dodge, it was white, and had white LEDs hooked up to his running lights. I thought it looked pretty sweet as he let me cross the street and I was starring at his mirrors. As far as the LEDs on the side what would you be using? Do you have a specific product in mind and color? Are you thinking about a switchback LED so it would be white until you put your blinker on?
Here is an example of one of GORecons products. It's their big rig light bar.

No they would be amber lights on both the mirror and the rockers if i do the rockers. And they would both be hooked to the running lights and they will both be hooked to the blinkers. More than likely they will be very similar to the big rig kits where the there are a lot of LED's close together. The mirror lights are 1'' lights that will stick 1/8'' of the mounted surface and then i will smoke the lens so they do not stick out so much on the black mirror...They will also be a small LED
