It appears that your country requires that type of side marker indicator which would only activate with the use of the turn signal.
Aaah that explains a lot, thanks! As far as the front indicators they should be stock now? That is when I replace the bulb for an amber one obviously. And what about the little front outer indicators? (Picture included) are they stock? And should they be lit when my lights are on?

Both front indicators in the US will be amber color.
The outer indicators are called corner markers or side markers in the US and they will stay lit with the headlights until you activate the turn signal.
Then the individual marker will blink according to which way you activate the turn signal.

I was hoping the doors would still be saveable. Oh well, i?ll see how long they last in Dutch-weather haha!
As far as I know the truck hasn?t been lifted, I don?t see any blocks on the rear, maybe an extra leaf but that?d be it. I have always loved the look of lifted trucks, hence it will be one of the first things I?ll do. As far as I know of I?ll be the only one in my country with a lifted Dually, which makes it even better. I don?t really ?need? the truck for work or towing or anything. Regelations in my country don?t allow me to load/tow that much without a trucker license... For me it?s a child dream and more of a hobby.
I definately see your point that for a hauler/tower it wouldn?t be so practical haha!
Grin - I got it, not a working truck - more for fun!

Your truck has some kind of lift, that's not stock ride height for the body..maybe just a body lift was done?

That's some nice rust repairs on the cab someone else did for you!

Lucky for you though that patch panel from LMC is cheap..50.00 and some and that's fixed!

With the rust I've seen so far, I'd suggest before you spend a bunch of money on a lift kit tires and wheels to do a really detailed inspection of the frame and related systems - just to make sure its strong and ready to go.

The frame,

* I'd be looking for rusted out mounting points, or other weak spots, cracks in the frame.
* Check the frame up around where the steering box mounts etc.
* Rusted or soon to be rusted out brake lines (common problem)
* Carrier Bearing and drivelines probably not a big issue if you're going with a
lift you'll need to do something there anyway.

.. these are things I think I'd fix before doing a lift kit - think safety first, then the goodies!

E.g. Towing mirrors, LED taillights, light bar and some working lamps.
I installed some GenIV styled towing mirrors on my 2002...after which I kicked myself in the @zz for not attempting on my 1998!

My Towing Mirror Swap

The other thing you will want to do is figure out how to stuff a Double Din radio..maybe will fit in your console...and get a nice touch screen and backup camera.

My Kenwood Stereo and Backup Camera install

Cameras are dirt cheap the camera I installed was 30.00 + 15.00 for a wireless transmitter, I spent 5x more on the spoiler I mounted the camera to!

The BU camera is easily the best safety feature I've ever added! And although you think you won't be towing much..if you do you'll appreciate the BU camera. I just hooked up to my car trailer to move it and nailed the ball placement the very first attempt by myself - PRICELESS!

Thanks for the reply! I?ll check out the things you mentioned, thanks! I have to say when I checked underneath before buying the truck, there was very little rust on the frame/bottom.
I will be ordering that patch panel asap!

What did you mean with someone else did rust repairs on the cab? Don?t understand haha!

The carrier bearing and X-joints will be replaced anyway when installing the lift kit since the carrier bearing has to be relocated down I believe.

I?ll take some pictures from the frame / bottom soon. I am used to a LOT of rust on my old chevy van, so I?m nog easily shocked by uncovering some rust haha.

These are the mirrors I had in mind:

For 88-00 Chevy GMC C/K 1500 2500 Suburban Tahoe Towing Mirrors Power+LED Signal | eBay

What do you guys think? I personally like the little indicator in the mirror glass.
It doesn't have an indicator on the outside of the mirror itself, which I don't really feel necessary.

You'll want to be careful with those ebay mirrors, you might save some $$ but the quality isn't that great. I spent a lot of time before I bought mine from 1AAuto.

I do prefer the look of the arrow indicator in the glass - but, I wanted more "bling" with the front facing led marker lights, and just really like the newer style duramax mirrors with the integrated bu light.

I had to order mirrors for a 2004 and make the wiring work myself - but you're lucky! They have options for you that look to be plug and play...even if you don't like that style they sell the type you were looking at too.

Check this page out - the TrailRidge ones are great quality too - the ones at the top would be the closest to what I installed..a little more expensive..but the wiring looks to be plug and play except for the backup light, turn signals (you'll have to run the wires for turn signals on the ebay ones too)

1995 K3500 Towing Mirrors 1AAuto

I tell you what..the bu lights do make a big diff with the dually, between my stock bu lights, the led ones on my headache rack, and the ones on my mirrors..its like daylight when I back up!

I was joking around looks to me like someone smeared some bondo over the rust and threw some paint over it - usually when you see a rust hole like that the rust is bubbling out from under the paint - in that pic it looks pretty smooth so thats another reason I thought someone tried a prior hack-ish repair (not you!)
