Angry Damn Thieves / Stolen Tail Lights

So This is what I wake up to. Tail Lights snatched and bulb wires cut. What gets me the madest is that they cut the bulb cables.


Before


Anyone have an idea roughly how much to replace the wires and process?

Sorry to hear about that. I have always been afraid of my tail lights or tail gate being stolen. Time to invest in a tailgate lock. Good luck with the wires.

If you can solder, you can do it yourself. Just get donor plugs and sockets from a salvage yard. Might be time for a locking tailgate latch, too.

Very sorry to see that! I had that happen last summer to me, and the thing I was pissed most about was the cut wires too. I had to pick up a set of marine boat lights to have in the box until my new lights arrived. I ended up getting new light looms off an '08 from a local yard and spliced them myself, I just used butt connectors, but if you want to solder it'd be better.
They made off with my LED tailights, and my tailgate too! They were the first mod I did to my truck and I've been paranoid about security since. Got a locking tonneau that locked to the tailgate, and relocated the handle to the inside. A locking handle would've been cheaper, but I wanted to shave my tailgate anyway.
