    Looks great. How did you run the wire up to the cargo light? I have an amazon kit I bought too.

    I took the cargo light out
    Took a Alan key and tied string to it
    Threw/pushed the string towards the driver side rear door
    Partially Removed drive side rear door panel and fished around for the Alan key
    Tied the wire to the string and pulled it to the 3rd brake light

    Wire runs under cab to a grommet right below the driver side floor mat and then inside along the door molding

    I just unloaded my dirt bike for about 20 min in the dark and this makes it a breeze

    THANK YOU for the tip on how to get a wire into the roof cavity. I posted a question asking that, some time ago, but received no intelligent reply. Thank you VERY muck.
