Yes you just have to run wires from your signals and markers to them

I have yet to see a set that look decent. Dhgfx4 or something like that with the massive green fx4 looks decent with them but I think they would look better with the stock mirrors with turn signals.

Love when you see a car/truck for sale and they have all the mods listed, with the price of each mod next to it

Personally I'd say mods (most of them) decrease value. It makes the vehicle much more personal and appeal to a smaller audience.

A lot of mods would scare me away from the vehicle all together, you don't know whether or not the work has been done correctly. Too many people drinking beer and hacking up their vehicles. The closer to stock, the better, when buying used.

Hahaha that's what I'm saying a stock truck is the only truck I will buy.

Haha my 98 1500 350 w/275+k got 17 easy with all city driving. It was a 2wd though but them 350s have all the power you could want and still get good mpg and they will take a beating and keep on chugging. The 5.4 is the same way but not as fuel efficient in my experiences.

In my area lifts and aftermarket radios make the vehicle easier to sell there for easier to ask a higher price for. Wheels in my opinion make it harder to sell since literally everyone likes a different wheel. Its different in all areas,in your area the fact that the truck is lifted could make it near impossible to sell,here it will have your phone ringing off the damn hook. My 89 was only lifted on 33s in rough shape,I sold it for more in one day than similar trucks in much better shape for less money,and the guy I sold it to was in his late 30s so it wasn't a teenage kid with money burning in his pocket

I'm not sure what engine my buddy has in his 2011 1500,but we've driven 20 hours on the interstate the past week and only averaged around 16 mpg. We screw around a lot though
