Thoroughly clean the surface where you'll be applying the trunk LED tail gate lamp. Use soap and water to scrub the area clean since that place is normally dirty.
Carefully measure beforehand where you're going to attach the LED strip so it looks even. The LED tailgate strip is designed to be a little bit shorter than the trunk tailgate so it can be fully universal fit. Take the length of the tail gate and subtract the length of the LED strip.
Quick math lesson! Divide that by 2 to see how much space you will leave per side in order for the entire attachment to be evenly spaced.
Straighten the LED strip and peel adhesive. Please make sure to appropriately apply it once since the adhesive is the strongest the first time it's applied. Firmly apply the LED tailgate strip light.
The package includes 4 mounting brackets with screws. You can use these to further secure the LED tailgate lights, but this step is optional!
Tap reverse light wire. You will need to remove either side of the tail light to locate the reverse light. Use a T-tap to tap the reverse light wire from the tailgate LED strip to positive.
This is the trailer light connector. You can see: ground, brake, left signal, right signal - plug that into stock trailer light connector.
You will find the trailer light connector near the tow hitch.
Hide the wires or zip-tie them. Check the trunk LED tailgate lamp to make sure everything works.
