Default CIPA Tow mirror signal lights?

I was wondering if anyone with these mirrors have installed signal or running lights into them. I see theres a plastic insert that looks like it should pop out for a light. Just was curious any input or info would be awesome! Thanks!

I contacted **** and they claim there are no lights availible to do such a thing. On the other hand I'm still convinced theres got to be something out there.

Don't know If this helps guys but I remember a memeber that had the towing mirrors and bought just the led strips of his color choice and put them on the side of the mirrors and just wired them into the turn signal.

There has to be something because I saw a dodge last week with the CIPA mirrors and the had what looked like a factory turn signal in them. So there has to be a way to do it and they just don't wanna sell you the lens

CIPA had tow mirrors that bolted right up power,heated,and directional about 5-6 months ago I remember someone posting about how cheap they were and I think everyone just kind of cleaned them out.

I had purchased those mirrors about a couple weeks prior to that drastic decline in price for my power mirrors. they have a cut out for the lights. I looked into it and I went on superbrightleds.com and found two lights that would fit... just be a little snug in the cut out. If I find them ill post them here all you had to do from there was run the wires down to your directionals and splice them in... pretty easy
