    NO....DO NOT DO THAT!!!!

    I ran into a similar situation.

    The wiring actually goes through the slots at the bottom...

    The wires go thru the slot on the enclosure.

    They are a pain to get the wire through them. Blow compressed air through the slots and then fish SHOVE a stiff wire through.

    You might see some powder and that I believe it is normal from the 3D printing.

    If you get stuck message me and I’ll walk you through it over the phone.

    It’s not obvious and it can take a bit of time.

    Haven’t heard of anyone having a different wiring setup.
    This is how mine was. Easy hook up.
    How is yours?

    Shouldn't have looked at this post at work. Must go home and change pants. That brake/cargo/chase set up is gonna look soooooo sick on my truck. Glad to see my question about the OEM connection answered as well. Stew out here doin the lord's work. So stoked on these!

    @MESO Will an access cab version of these be made? Need to know if I should squeeze these into my pre-approved list of mods to purchase when they drop. :D

    Negative.
    This will be a 2 part brake light. The BASE will hold the gasket, and bolt onto the cab sealing everything up.
    Then The HEX SHELL will snap over the top(retaining screws on the bottom) so you can still remove/access the lights without breaking the cab seal. Also people that are running campers/caps can use just the BASE for wire pass through, etc

    Yes most likely. Now that I will be making/selling my own "rock lights" I will create more housings to pair with them

    @MESO your first post (that I quoted here) shows and mentions an integrated OEM style plug. The later does not reflect this.

    Additionally, those that choose to run chase lights, or some other light configuration that is NON-stock may have problems with the stock style plug. Do you plan to offer multiple back plate options, or is this later post witch seems to show a small pass through hole the newest version, which would also allow added light configurations?
