Default Need to make my own Tailgate Lightbar Trailer Plug

I am looking at buying a tailgate lightbar but its home made and doesnt include a plug and play connector. I looked into all the big name brand ones, really liked the Recon but did not like the amber scanning turn signals and wanted red. But not a fan of the plasmaglows red scanning turn signals. This one actually does progressive turn signals, which I am a big fan of. Its a 3 piece set that has a middle (tail and brake only) and left and right piece (both ends have tail/brake/and signal)Is it possible to add one on my own when I get it. I am still clarifying with the seller if each piece will have to be tied in, or if they are already connected to one wiring harness.
Thanks! Hope everyone had a good weekend.

just get a "t" connector for your truck and splice your light bar into it, use shink wrap and dialectic grease, will make a nice clean job behind the bumper and you wont cut into the trucks OEM wire harness.

Awesome I was planning on getting one of those anyway. So where the pigtail plug is just cut the plug off and connect the wires? Do you happen to know which one is which. (Obviously not on the light bar but on the harness/plug)

Yes it does thanks! Just making sure I'm correct. White is ground green in r turn yellow left turn. And a little confused. Does red go to both left and r side stop and brown goes to both left and r side tail/running ?
Thanks!

No, the red (stop) and brown (taillight) only connect to one side to draw power.

Per the seller ill only be able to attach te stop/tail to the harness. He says the signals will require a source that does not combine the stop or tail with the signal. Is there any other way to connect this then aside from hard wiring it? Will the 7 pin connector work for this? So in summary looks like I can have all 3 strips wired together for stop and tail but both signals need to have independent power.

I have something like this for a project I am going to do eventually, to separate out the stop and turns from a 4-wire plug coming off of the t-connector I have yet to buy.


Would have found an ebay link, but apparently ebay is down?

I have the combo 7 pin/4 pin on my truck now. Assuming the 7 pin does the left and right signal separately which I think it does (someone confirm please) ill just get a new t connector instead of the 4 pin one and just have 2 7 pin connectors and use this to run to the bar and just cap any of the extra wires I don't use. Am I on the right track now?
