Wired them to come on with cargo lights on 3rd brakelight, with help from Boosted Motorsports youtube video. Finally converted all my halogen lights to led with a lot of trial and error, waiting on 3rd brakelight to change the one I have that has water in it

Looks nice. Also just a suggestion, if you add a LED behind the red lens of the CHMSL, the LED color should be red as well.

Sorry about that, I thought you were just going to replace a bulb in the stock unit. You will have to let us know how the new one works out for you since many have had water leaks with the stock ones.

love the bed lights

i wired mine to a hot from the trailer plug, and installed a N/O switch in the tailgate
when i drop the tail gate, the lights come on

why this is not a basic feature is beyond me
good luck finding a hatchback with no trunk light

I just got a Rebel 2500, and in addition to the cargo light that comes on, a LED light comes on in the rear tailgate handle. I wonder if anyone has wired their aftermarket bedlights to the hot wire of the tailgate light? Seems like it would work. Then anytime my cargo/tailgate light comes on, so do the bedlights. Two led bedlights shouldn't cause that much additional load to the circuit. Anyone know where to find wiring diagrams for a 2024?
