Hey ibd, or anyone else for that matter, when you're connecting aftermarket harness to the stock harness what is the best way to connect the wires? Thanks in advance.

You should probably solder them. This prevents any problems.

Fugg it. I just crimped those things together and wrapped em in electrical tape. Never had a single issue with it.

^^Yup^^. It would take a half a day to solder all the connections. My crush caps have never failed in 10 years of using them.

I only have 3 wires in the back of mine. So they are soldered. Obviously that's the best way, but caps or other methods work fine it done correctly.
