I was afraid to have someone hook up to the harness.....although many do. I ran trailer wires from the front of my dodge to the back and then connect magnetic lights to the back of the truck. Maybe one day I'll be brave enough to have a permanent install

I use separate light fixtures, drill holes in the tail lights and insert the fixtures in the tail lights and run wire as on a trailer light hookup. Simple and have never spliced the vehicle wiring harness. Been doing it this way for years.
