    I used amber in place of the white. My reds have cracked lenses and some of the led's have stopped working but the ambers have been completely fine.

    Bought a @MESO BD5 third brake light setup, but need some advice on how to snake the individual rock light wiring through the MESO brake light housing... am I an idiot or is it just as tricky as it seems?

    i saw a set of tails similar to this running around today. clear lens, horshoe clear, the light is red though. looked good. are these custom or is there a vendor selling something similar? i was thinking these are actually sr5/trd housing and pro/limited lenses.

    Looks like a mix of both.

    @Tacospike: yeah, thats what i was thinking. trd housing (the one with the black bezels instead of chrome), with the clear lens and meso v1 ultimate tail light setup would be a killer combo.

    is this a trick question? I’m going with idiot....:)
    Simply push it through and pull it out the other end. Maybe MESO has changed the hole size, or BD have changed the Insulation/ cable thickness, but it was super simple for me. Now I’m not that fond of the orientation of the holes and bit fiddey seating / removing the light due to that, but I’ve done it a few times and no cable / joint has broken or water leaked through the holes. So can’t complain, it works and it seals. Can’t ask for more than that.

    Picked up a KC Gen 2 set up recently. Getting ready for the install. I went with a 2 red (TL) and 2 amber, which I want to wire to an independent switch. Has anyone already completed this set up and would like to share their set do's and don'ts, or the wiring path?

    mine are connected with separate power and earth, I just run the lines on the passenger side as I wanted to keep them away from any interference to the OEM wiring which is drivers side. Earth because I really don’t think the stock earth is up to the task of these lights, (it’s about 24g). and power to the bed lights so they can be turned on with either bed or reverse lights. But in your case that would be a separate switch. It’ll take more time to remove the trim that it will installing the wire, and once you have the trim off there really is only a few options for how / where you can run the wire.
