It's the white wire with red stripe. Should be middle wire of the 7 pin lighting harness/connector.

I asked for the tail lights not the 7pin since I have a 4 pin

You will have to tap into both the white/brown tracer and white/dark green tracer, doing so will give you tail lights and blinkers.

EDIT: you will also need to add a diode to each circuit to ensure no voltage returns to opposite side. Example- w/o diode and you hit right blinker, left blinker will also engage since you are tying circuits together and flow goes to ground. Add a diode and power can not "flow uphill" so to speak.

Has a nice solid piece of aluminum back plate and ships as one straight tube not all rolled up into a little box

Let me know what ya think


So I got one of these lights for Christmas. My wife surprised me with it. Got it installed today and looks great. However she ordered a 60 and they shipped 49. Actually didn't notice it until after I wired it up and was bout to mount it.
