    I just got a bed cap (A.R.E.) for my 2000 standard cab and I was wondering if anyone knows how to connect the wires for the break light and interior dome light...

    use wire taps to connect your wires

    green w/red trace = brake

    green = parking lamp (used for dome light)

    white = you can use this for the ground

    Quick tip - before removing taillight tape the red and amber lens to the black light housing (it will come apart and can be tricky to reset the seal). there is enough room on the underside of the drivers bedrail to sneak the three wires into the taillight area.

    if you experience any trouble message me, but it is very straight forward
