Just splice into existing backup crkt. One wire from each lite or wire together first. Lites already grnded to bumper

Wire it into the taillight. If you pull the tailight housing off the tub you will see a violet wire. Splice your lights into that - that is the power to the stock backup bulbs.

Wiring to the existing back up lights is fine as long as the news lights are low amp LED's. If not, you will need a new power run and a relay.
