HOLY MOLY thats gorgeous. Any details on the mirrors?
Thanks sandFJ90210,
The mirror lights are 2.5" COB fog lights with halos. You can get these just about anywhere (amazon, ebay, Wal-Mart.com) in various halo colors. You can find quite a few people that have installed these in their mirrors. I wasn't happy with the light output from the cheap halos so I replaced them with 60mm switchback halos from The Retrofit Source. More expensive, but much brighter and the color is correct now also (1st pic). The housings on these lights fit almost perfectly in the hole for the stock mirror light, so you just hold them in place inside the mirror housing, add a little caulk or epoxy, let it dry, and they are mounted (2nd pic). I wired the fog light and the white side of the switchback to my fog light circuit (3rd pic) and wired the amber side of the switchback to my running lights and turn signals (4th pic).

New Mexico is closer. And I'm a cheap date, I don't/can't drink. A plate of wings would be nice though. We even have a brewery that has great beer and food.

Any details on the wiring for the mirror lights? I bought the same 2.5” cob lights just can’t figure out how to wire it up.

All depends on what you want to do with them. There should be two wires (a ground and a power) for the spot light, and then three wires (a ground, power for white, and power for the yellow) for the halo. The halo is probably a flashback type which means power on the white will give you white, but power on the yellow will always over-ride the white and give you yellow (even if there is power on the white).

You can land the two ground wires inside the door, but the rest of the signals will come from inside the truck or under the hood, so you'll have to pull wires through the door, through the harness boot between the door and the body, and into the interior. You can tap into the turn signals and running lights behind each turn signal light, or tap into the trailer light controller under the dash (I wrote that up here).

Hope this helps.

Re: Show us your lights!!

Can't top @CRayFJ - love your FJ! but here's my best shot...

Front Baja Designs Squadron Pro on strobe (via Switch Pro), grille lights are amber strobe and white solid (DRL). Replaced the mirror lights with amber strobes. Rear flush mounted strobes in bumper and NAS Land Rover style clear lens fogs.
Some more BD's on the roof along with a cheapo single row lightbar.
