So I can't really see from the pics earlier in this thread but when you put the Pop n Lock wire through the split wire cover for the back up camera, do you run it through the entire length of the truck? Or do you split it once your underneath the bed with a bunch of electric tape and use the cover that Pop n Lock gave you?
The wiring is going to come in two sections - a shorter length for inside the tailgate and a longer length to run towards the front of the truck to connect to the door locks. You can use both exactly as they come, following the instructions included with the Pop & Lock.
However, if you leave the one inside the tailgate inside it's split wire sleeve, you'll have to figure out how to fit that through the tailgate to run under the truck. Many cut the plastic plug used by the camera's wiring to do that. However, an alternative
is to just insert the Pop & Lock's wiring inside the existing split plastic sleeve for the camera's wiring. That split plastic sleeve already fits through the plugs in the tailgate (neater, no cutting, no drilling, etc).
Anyway, once you get the wiring from the tailgate under the truck and plugged into the longer section running towards the front of the truck, you can once again follow the instructions included with the Pop & Lock. However, yet another alternative
is to run that wiring to the passenger side instead of the driver's side. Read the comments in this thread for why and how.
