    As the title says can anyone point me in the right direction as to where the rear brake lights are grounded on an '04 4X4 xcab? The issue I'm having is when the lights are on, one side is dimmer than the other and when the brakes are applied the problem switches sides. I suspect it's a grounding issue.

    There're two spots that they're grounded at. One behind the driver's side kick panel and one behind the the passenger side kick panel. The scuff panel and kick panel Both need to be removed. Both are about 8 inches from where the door hinges toward where the firewall and fender meet. White wires with blk stripe held to the body with gold bolts.
