Default connecting led tailgate lightbar

I have a recon line of fire tailgate lightbar I have not put on yet. The lightbar has a standard 4 pin plug that can go into the factory towing receptical. My question there a way to pull the 4-pin plug back behind the bumper so the lightbars plug is not coming out of the back of the truck, then back behind the bumper?? I know you can direct wire it into the harness..but I like the idea of just directly pluging it in. I just dont want it outside of the bumper where the factory receptical is. Any ideas?? can the 4 pin receptical be disconnected so it can be accessed behind the bumper?
How about I put my "carbon footprint" up your liberal ass?

You could hard wire in another 4 pin receptical behind your bumper, you can get on at almost any auto parts store or U-haul dealer.......just strip away a little of the wire shielding on each of the four wires leading to your factory 4 pin bumper receptical...attach the color matching wires from your new additional 4 pin receptical, can test with a circuit tester if unsure which wire goes where...soldering suggested,but not manditory, and you would now have an additional hidden plug ( you can hang it where ever you want it) that you could now attach your led lights to...and you could remove them any time you want...and it would have no effect on your factory towing recepticals..... Just one way of doing what you seem to be wanting to do....
So it is written ! So it shall be done!
