FTNuke There should be a connection right below your tailgate hinge; it should just look like two metal buttons. They make contact with two matching buttons on the tailgate when it is shut for the original brake light. This is for a Jeep TJ, not sure of the set up for other models.

Good luck, but if I were you I would just skip Recon and find someone who will pass your Jeep as is.

3rd party, 3rd brake light wiring

Hello folks, trying to get my recon sticker and they say I need a 3rd brake light. Trying to install a generic brake light, got it all mounted but the wiring is the problem....can I wire directly to the left or right light wiring? Does it matter which side I tap into? Or is there somewhere else I should be connecting to. I also have a trailer, is there any way to plug into that connector to get the 3rd brake light to work?
