    Hey guys, Need some directions and help, i bought some LED light bulbs for my jeeps tail light, after i got the hyper flasg i went to autozone to get some 6om resistors. But i have no idea which wires on the Jl tail light to splice.

    do i splice the tail light housing? Or the wire harness assembly inside the body? If so what color?

    Any advice would be appreciated

    Not sure if it helps, but here's a pic of the resistor wiring that comes spliced into the Oracle LED replacement taillights that I just got in yesterday. IMG_20191203_190646.jpg

    Sorry, wasn't too sure how it compares to stock. I was sitting in the garage smoking a cigar and the box was right there.

    Should be the same position in the connector though as these connect right up to the stock harness.

    It's on the opposite side of the connector. So the side that has the most wires, it'll be the wires on both ends.
