What are these marker lights called and where can I get part

These little light towers on the front corners function as turn signals. I need the little cap lens thing that goes on top, as one side is missing.

What are they called and where can I get them?

I think those things are commonly referred to as "bumper poles" or "rookie poles". HTH.

You'd tend to find those at big truck (Freightliner, Peterbilt etc) supply outlets. Large plaza-style truck stops, locally look for anyone selling big truck accessories.

If a new truck dealership has them typically they'd not have nor be interested in ordering small new or replacement parts.

Might also look at larger RV outfitters or suppliers---for "rookie poles" that'd be the best place to check.

Frankly I've not seen those in forever---didn't know they were still available.

Thanks guys!

Are they considered "noob", to have them on an adventure vehicle?

^^^ lmao, i wouldnt think so, but seriously, who cares what others think? if it helps you maneuver around without damaging your rig, get'em and us'em accordingly!

a lot of the older (not sure if new ones come equipped with them or not) cars in japan came stock with setups like this to aid in parking.
