Hello and Good Day to everyone. I really need some help. I am trying to install a lit license plate frame and I don't know where to hook the wires up or do I need to splice them in? I'm bald as it is so I can't pull my hair out in frustration. If anyone out there would be so kind as to give a some kind of directions I would be very grateful. Thanks Mike Allne:eek:

Welcome to the forum. I would just tap into the taillight wire (brown) for power and ground it anywhere.

Thanks for the wiring diagram but I'm not really good at reading them. I really need to know do I just cut and strip the wires for the tail lights and then just splice them all back together? There are three wires running to the tail lights. Ones ground and the other two are for tail lights and one is for braking. I just need to tap into the tail light wire or splice into it?

You can just hook in (tap) into one of the brown wires running to the tail lights. I know 3M makes a good assortment of connectors. That way your not having to cut the factory line

A local car parts store, or motorcycle shop, or whatever may be closest to you probably has something to that effect. Just tell the guy behind the counter what you are looking to do. Or if you Amazon at all, type in scotchlok and some options will come up.

The easiest would be just to go to the parts store and get a scotchlok (red ones) and tap in. You could also strip back the covering on the wire and hard wire/solder it in. Either will work, the choice is yours... lol

I would also suggest tapping into the harness AFTER the connector to the tail-lights.

That way if something were to go amiss down the road, you could a) unplug the taillights to get home if a short or something happens in your connector, and b) you'd only need to replace the relatively cheap taillight section of the harness, rather than the much more expensive main harness of something goes awry.

Anal i know, but 30 miles from the tow vehicle in AZ heat can make you think of the worst case scenario.

The connector is on the passenger side under the dump bed, just behind the lower lip of the tailgate. If memory serves, the wires change colors after the connector, so make sure you get the right ones.
