If you remove one tail light (two screws) you can see a hole into the truck bed for the wiring. You will also need a ground wire which just needs to be only long enough to reach a screw into the body or frame. Instructions come with the dimmer. The LED's also come with instructions. They are real simple. Every 3 LEDs you will see four circular solder pads with a line between them. That is a cut line. You can cut the string at any cut line then solder two wires to the pads (I used small gauge speaker wire). I cut the velcro into strips as wide as the lights, then peeled backing off of both and stuck them together. Work a few inches at a time. Both are really sticky. I also used the velcro to hold the wire to the shell. Makes a neat installation.
Thanks man, hopefully I can get this figured out. I've never been good with electricity....

Drove around in the snow a little after running the last load of leaves from the yard for the year. Old blue has a little over 191,000 on it now...and some **** poor wipers.

I installed these tail lights I bought from a member. I like the way they look a lot, but even better than that, I wanted to get some extra reverse lights, I couldn't see anything behind me at night. I got a LED light kit off ebay, and out them in when I installed the new tails. OMG I can't believe how bright they are! couldn't be happier

That's a whole roll. 5 meters. I have only used two 6ft strips so far and it is plenty of light. I used the hook side of velcro to attach it to the carpeted inside of my shell. I also ordered a dimmer Z 15900. Not cheap but very well made.
Should be great for camping now. I also added a 12V power port and some additional outputs for more lights.
The shell comes with a small light in the rear. They usually install a circuit from the battery. I asked the shell installer to use large wire.They installed a 10A fuse holder and 15A fuse at the battery and 12ga wire. I replaced that with a 30a fuse and holder. Also removed quite a bit of corrosion around the positive terminal and treated it so it should not return.
@Feathermerchant
Wow...Awesome. Look good too.

Plasti dipped the insets on my stock KR 18s. Turned out better than I thought. I'll probably paint them eventually

What about painting the inserts the primary color of the truck? Looks good IMO

Never thought about that. Probably would look good tho. I'd say it would be hard to match the paint exactly right tho.
