    Hey guys,

    I purchased a snugtop with a interior led light and didnt have the time to have the distributors wire it. They wired my brake light though. Does anyone know of a constant hot wire to tap into from the back of the cab? I doubt there even is one but who knows. If there isnt one, what is the closest one to tap into? Thanks again for the help!

    Great question! I am in the same boat, I wired the brake light by tapping into the left rear tail light. I plan to share the ground with the dome light. I ran out of time but I may check the 7 pin connector to see if any of the wires are hot. Barring that I will probably run a wire to the engine bay and wire the dome so it hot all the time.
