Euro Tail Lights Problem

I ordered for my Ranger some euro tail light lenses, problem is they have only 2 bulb holes, and mine has 3 lights. Is it a good idea and even safe to splice the turn signal wires into the brake/marker lights??? I really love the look these new euros give, but not if its at the expense of safe wiring.... I have already contacted the manufacturer to see if a 3 bulb version is made, but Im afraid they arent in the look I want....

Easy fix if they don't have what you would like
Modify your wiring to accommodate break/running light bulb
All you need is to find a wiring harness and splice it into yours,
The best way to find one would be in scrap yard, but make sure it will fit your light

Hope this helps

I have another possible solution, if there is room what if I was to cut the round shape and notches for the signal bulb to fit beside the brake bulb in the same lens. Sorta like in this pic.

Ok this is gonna be alot harder than I first figured. There isnt enough room to cut a hole for the signal light to share the same space as the brake/park lights. I went to the wrecking yard, and to find a wiring harness that will splice is really tough. Finally I tried splicing the wires together, and nope it didnt work... I think its time to take the truck to the auto electric guy, and get him to do it... My understaning of electrical is little at best, and this was a job that is obviously way over my head...

Ok I talked with a auto electric guy.. He would do if from the fusebox area, and run separate wiring with its own fuse that way. Cost about 60-90 depending on time. I just ordered a new set of almost the same euro's for $60 and they are the 3 bulb. Problem solved... Well almost, now I have a set of euro taillights for sale, 2 bulb version..

are the bulb/sockets different from one light to the other?
Did the euro lights come with bulb sockets?

Can you get me some pic of the wiring? different bulb socket wiring?

Alright.. I understand.. You have altezza lights you want to install.

From what I looked up. brake/signal/marker all have to stay seperate..

so that would be a 3 filement bulb.. if all possible,, but the brake and signal will have to be visually different.. not sure what wiring he would run from the fuse panel.. but all his wiring is already @ the back.. it comes from the fuse panel..
