WHAT? Am I missing something?
No tail lts or turn signals?
Not a good answer and you won't be legal w/o them.
You need brake, tail lights and turn signals.
Several different ways to accomplish it with available kits if you want to DIY take a look at eTrsiler.com enter your vehicle and you will find wiring kits.
Some tie into Toad wiring w diodes
Others you add a bulb in each rear lens and are wired completely separate (I have and prefer this approach but many others use and prefer others)
There are also magnetic lights that are placed temporarily when towing. Wiring is separate from Toad and can be installed so you plug them in at rear and place them when needed.
