    Where can I get these connectors? I bought a lightbar but I need to extend the wiring harness and wanted to make it a plug and play connection. Any one know where or have ideas on how to make a plug and play connection?

    That's the inside of housing with the pins.

    it has to do with the crimp end of the connector and the tool you need to have. you will need a special tool to correctly crimp those terminals.

    Or, you could cut the wires before the connectors and add length to the harness (using a similar insulation/heatshrink and some waterproof tape at the splices.)

    I bought and use this kit for all wiring. Pricey, but worth it if you do a lot and make your own harnesses. If you run out of anything in the kit you can buy additional separately.

    Delphi Weatherpack Kit-1104 Pcs with Crimp Tool https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005AZWPUI/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_yQFKwbT2ST9FZ

    Edit: And there's cheaper kits with less in it. There's a 405 piece kit I think for under $100, but doesn't come with the crimp tool. Super easy to use and the crimp quality is awesome. Wires never pull out on me. Plus the plastic connectors are pretty great too. I've had those deutch connectors get brittle and break on me. Plus theyr are a pita to take apart if needing to remove the connector. Might be easier if they have a tool for that, Idk. I just like these better.

    Check out the build
    If those are from a light bar they are most likely stamped. The solids are the way to go, but they are more expensive, not only the connectors but the tools as well. The housings are all the same.
