Just installed the Ryco Turn Signal / Horn Kit this weekend. All in all a very nice kit and good company to work with. Not the cheapest kit you can buy, but probably one of the best. Instructions are way above most of the competitors, with clear color pictures and pretty thorough step by step instructions without too many assumptions or missed details. I write and approve detailed instructions for Maint and repair of critical equipment, so I’m probably a bit more critical than a lot of people would be, but for the most part, if you actually read them all the way through the step without assuming you already know what it’s going to say you will save yourself some headaches during the installation!
The best part is the Talon Kit is a true plug and play kit with no cutting and splicing wires! The harnesses and connectors are right, well made, and fit and plug where their supposed to!
The turn signal/Horn leaver mounts on the steering column, but uses the factory Tilt Lever mounting bracket for a nice clean installation rather than some hose clamp installation like so many others!
There are a couple wiring options such as using the turn signal lights as running lights, or not, and enabling the rear brake lights to flash rapidly for 1second upon stepping on the pedal, or not. I opted to enable both those functions and really like the setup that way!

the only difficulty I ran into was with the two tiny LED dash indicator lights. They are tiny, smaller than a pencil eraser, and attached to some really tiny wires. I chose to try and install them in the molded rises on the dash behind the wheel, pretty much as the instructions showed, but that turned into a 2 hr nightmare trying to get the little bulbs through the supplied rubber grommets! Turns out there is almost no way to push the bulbs through the hole/grommet from behind the dash, and pretty much no way to push them into the grommet from the front due to the square edge on the bottom of the LED bulb. After 2 hrs of fighting, pushing, pulling, smearing soap/Vaseline and any other slippery substance I could find on the bulb and grommet I finally managed to fatigue the tiny wires until they broke off the bulb!
But, I called Ryco to see if I could buy another dash light harness and they immediately offered to send out “a couple new harnesses of different designs” free of charge! I thought that was awesome! The new harnesses should be here in a couple days so I’m looking forward to that!
Beyond that hiccup, the install was straight forward and relatively simple. Just read the instructions carefully for each step!

I installed the kit last weekend. Took my time and it took most of the day. I mounted the indicator led's in a more convenient position closer to the top of the dash area. Otherwise, it all went together nicely. I'm tall so I ground the bracket that holds the turn/horn level down to minimize sharp and protruding edges so my knees wouldn't get injured.

Ezgoin, which front bumper/winch mount is that/
