    [QUOTE="You want one (actually 3 taps) to do brake, turn, and parking lights? Can add a 4th tap for reverse as well. I am kicking around an idea right now for toppers with those functions. You might want to stand by :)
    @TacoSRSX If you are doing a topper, you may want to wait to. I will get off my ass and get this prototyped...[/QUOTE]

    I'm not using a topper, I just want an extra brake light in the rear. Looking at either an LED strip or just a third brake light that I will mount somehow under the tailgate. I bought the third brake light that is advertised in the links below for now, to try out with the tap I got from you.

    Added. Hopefully not too much longer.

    If you end up getting one of those strips that does turn signals too, let me know :)

    Thanks for adding me to the list. In one of your earlier posts you mentioned being able to add three taps for brake/running lights/ground. Can you add that for mine as well please?

    Can I jump on the train for the regular 3rd gen brake light?

    Also, how are you folks running the wires out of the compartment behind the tail lights? I'd like to avoid drilling if possible.

    This is how I did mine. Only modification I made was taking a dremel to that black bed cap. I have a phat harness with 6 wires so I needed a bigger hole (so to speak). Something to note: you will likely want to hold off from putting the wires in your connector so you can route the wires through the holes available if that makes sense. Maybe I can get more pictures later.

    Added.

    And just an unupdate for everyone. I am still waiting on the female housings. Hopefully soon! I did take the delay to make some more, so I will have plenty ready as soon as those females get here.

    It is still open, and I have added both of you. I have a bunch on order, so I will make up some more so they are ready when I get the last piece.

    I’m in if you’ll take more sign ups! I want to run BD Rock lights as a third brake light on my bed rack. Let me know how/where/when to pay.

    Ok, just want to give everyone an update. The parts are in America. I am not positive where (LA or Las Vegas as far as I can guess). So hopefully not long to Denver...
