What are you guys using to connect the 6.0 turn signals.... I could cut off the connector on the pigtail but I would rather not

I like to use Casper electronics weatherproof connectors.

Take a look.

OH !
You mean what connector to use AT the turn signal lights!
That is a whole different thing.
In a pinch you could use spade terminals on the wires but I would be sure to seal the connector from weather.

Yeah like Gwader said, the fuel injector connectors fit perfectly, you can get them at the wreckers for free *wink* But this is what they look like...

@RT: Hi, I just want to know about how to connect the spade terminals on the wires and moreover I am also interested in how we can make the connector sealed from the weather conditions?

For any two wire light bulb (except LED) you can mix up the wires, it is not a big deal.
For sealing, use dielectric grease wherever possible.

Spade terminal connectors just crimp on to the wires. You can get them at Ace Hardware or McMaster. McMaster has a much bigger selection. Radio Shack has none. I recommend using a wiring crimper made for the job instead of pliers or Visegrip. They do a much better job.
One warning. The Ace Hardware connectors are fine BUT you have to squeeze the crimp in just the right location. They made the crimp area too narrow (if you ask me) and if you don't get it right, the crimper slides off and you have a mess to try crimping again.
I use the fully insulated spade terminals so there is no chance of accidentally shorting out.
Note: the terminals come in different widths. Measure your existing lugs.
Also, if you need to connect two wires (a power and ground) to a motor or light and want to make it a removable connection, make the power supply wire a male connector and the ground supply wire a female connector and then secure the wires together at that junction on either side of the connection. When you reconnect them you will never get them switched.
The connectors are color coded for wire size: red (smallest), blue (most used for our cars) or yellow (big). Read the package for wire gage size.

jdinner answered the sealing question. You could also use silicone caulk but if you want the connection to be removable grease the area you do not want the silicone to attach to.

.25" male and female crimp style spade terminals are available with a full insulating cover that perfectly fit over one another. To make it weather/waterproof I wipe clear silicone grease into the wire opening, insert the stripped wire, then crimp. Then I also wipe the grease into the female spade end and plug the male into it. Wipe off any excess grease and done.

EDIT
I should have refreshed the page, I didn't see the 2 previous posts before I replied & posted so mine is a bit repetitive.
