Has anyone wired up a Lighted headache rack? If so could you possibly tell me what wires and where you spliced into them. I dont really want to run extra wires from the tail lights back to the headache rack. Pictures would help as well. Or a website that tells how to do it. TIA
Going into your trailer plug would be the easiest I'd say.
You should be able to follow the wires from your plug back up the frame.. and hook to them halfway at least.. between where the bed and cab meet.
Just an idea.
The 4way plug is a good way to tap into, since its not used if you have a tow package, you can just plug in a 4 wire trailer kit and wire it to the lights with no splicing.. most of those come color coded yellow green and brown and about 25' lenght...

I used the 4-way plug to wire mine up. I did not bother with using white backup lights up on the rack, wired up two led tail light instead. I considered tapping into the factory wire harness along the frame, near the cab/bed junction, and installing a 4-way plug there, that way ifI had to remove the headache rack I could just unplug it close by the rack. I twas just easier to run a trailer cable along the frame and tie it up with some ty wraps.
Tranny reverse light switch or pick up the reverse light wire off the 7-way if you are running it from the back would be what I'd do. They DO offer a 6-way flat wire or a round 6 conductor cable for trailer wiring also.

it allows you to put a 7 way in the bed. then i got another one of the harness without the trailer plug for $20. and went from the gn plug to the headache rach. since my lights are LED's i wasnt concerned about puttin too much load on truck, trailer lights are LEDs too.
