    I'm no electrician but I think we'll need some more information.

    Are you wiring these to a relay? Are they going to be able to be powered anytime, or only when the truck is in reverse? Does it have a harness with it? Pics?

    take the two 10mm bolts out of the side of the tailight
    pull the tail light off
    where the bulb for the reverse light is there are two wires, one red and black and one white.
    tap into the red and black wire
    check to make sure it lights up. :thumsbup:

    there are two 10mm bolts, one on top and one on the bottom. once there out its held in with two clips, just lightly tug and they will let go.

    That's the easy part for me.

    After the two bolts are out, just pull on them gently and they should end up popping out with a little negotiating.
