    Ok stupid question, I ordered a hopkins plug in 43355 wiring harness for my '08 reg cab 4 cylinder 2wd, but i can't seem to find where it plugs into. Did I order the wrong harness? Does anyone have a pick of where this attaches? Thanks for the help. rick

    Thanks, I didnt realize i had to pull the tail lights out in order to reach the T-connector. I mistakenly thought I would be able to see and access the connector from underneath the truck. Thanks guys.

    Once you pull the tail light it is an easy install. Just be sure to leave enough length in the wires to the right tail light. I would not stick the converter onto the inside of the tail light until all wires are run. I had to pull mine loose and re-mount it lower to have enough slack to the right light.
