Hi Chris, first I have to say that using LED marker lights aren't needed to save battery
power if that's what you're after as they are powered by the tug. I did replace my stock markers that were breaking up from UV with LEDs because they were cheaper
. I posted a few pictures of what I did. You will have to pull the +/- wires out of the shell. Your outside lights were installed before the carpet was installed. They had it easy connecting the neg wire to the rivet. They are in between the shell and GLUED carpet and are held very well. On one or two I had to cut the carpet on the inside to add wire as it wouldn't pull. I soldered short pigtails with ring connectors to the neg wire. Make sure you use a tester to make sure it's -. Had to drill out the back plate of the light
to get the ring through it. The ring connector was used with a rivet to the neg pole of the light. Clear as mud I know
, wish I knew how to add the pics I posted of it. Anyway, just one way to get it done.
