Ok, I was hoping there might be enough room between the bottom of the jeep light cut out and the top of the skin cut out so I could skip the part altogether. So, if I understand what you are saying that hole allows you to get your hand inside the body to mount the brackets?
Zimm, I just want to confirm you did the 3 inch T handles and not 4 before I order?
Lol well shit, now I'm gonna search for my entertainment. Thanks Ddays.
Sorry to bump an old thread . Can anyone who wired up these Maxxima lights with reverse light explain quickly how to wire up to the Jeep?
Is this red connector needed for each plug ?
Do I splice the red, black, and white wires together into 3 wires ?
Is a maxxima resistor required ? Have a link ?
Thanks in advance View attachment 355203

Well its been awhile ago since I did mine and can't remember exactly but... *
I know I was nervous about cutting and splicing so I bought the Poison Spyder tail light harnesses. They were like $130 but if I remember correctly it was plug and play.
Hmm that is really helpful.
I sort of figured out the wiring... this is what I found:
Brake lights :
JK's Purple/White (+) = Running Light Power
JK's Black (-) = Ground
JK's Yellow/White (+) = Turn Signal/Brake Power
Reverse lights :
JK's Green/White (+) = Reverse Power
JK's Black (-) = Ground
Red- reverse ---> green/white
Red- stop/turn --- yellow/white
Black- tail light --- purple / white
However, it doesn't explain the resistor.
I grabbed a photo of the PS wiring harness... seems like it wouldn't be quite plug and play for the Maxxima lights because while it does have 1 3 plug connector that would be plug and play, the other one turns into 2 connectors which won't match the other 3 plug..

My harness is on the jeep so I can't tell 100% on colors but:
Black - ground
White/green - reverse
White/purple - stop/turn
White - taillight
Light side(per my picture)
White - ground
Black - taillight
Red - stop/turn
Resistor goes on the turn signal and the ground. The second plug with two wires will be for the reverse lights. As you can see in the last picture, I had to split the ground for the taillights and reverse lights so I have a white/green and a black hanging loose. I have the trucklites so no reverse built in. I ran those two to my reverse lights. Hope this helps.
Edit: MAKE SURE YOU SECURE THE RESISTOR UP AWAY FROM THE WIRES. It will get hot, melt all the wires, and ruin all of your work.
