Its really not that complicated once you get everything you need UNDER the truck. If you do what I did, leave stuff on the tail gate or the motor its takes a little bit longer haha

Didn't quite understood the last sentence.
The truck thing is new to me. I'm sure once I get under there, I'll see what you're all talking about

Im so use to wiring cars as everything is inside (including the truck)
I will have to check my truck out to see what is the best possible way to wire this.

Running wires and adding electronics to this truck really isn't that bad. Just gotta crawl under there and see what you have to work with to hide the wiring!

Now if your tapping into your reverse wire to turn it on just take out the tail light, tap into it, and run your wire through the hole that will drop it down under the truck. Then all you have to do is run it along the side next to the other lines and up through the firewall or the clutch delete into the cab to your switch!

I am curious to see the finished product with all this wiring/switches for the reverse lights.

Arth, you are correct! Again, I'm use to doing this on cars where there is a truck and all can be inside the vehicle.
I'm sure it will be pretty easy. Well...not easy, but doable!
I just want to avoid wiring to 2 tail light reverse.
I'd rather tap into the wire that controls both reverse.
I'll get this done and will enjoy it when it's completed

I think it would take some serious tracing to find ONE wire that controls both. It should be easier to just go to both of them.

That's what I figured.
I guess, is there a way to run one wire from under the hood and split it close to the rear of the truck to go to each tail light?
