hey all,

can somebody please save me from myself?

i had to pull the tailgate apart, and noticed there's optional holes to double up the reverse lights.
can i just go 2 more 21watt lights on that tailgate loom without adding relays and/or wires from the switch?

Yes, you should be able to see cast in the plastic the three keyed bayonet fitting outline.

Yes can be done, very easy.

As Snap said, cut out the casting, I used a dremel and fit extra lights.

I used an extra set from another wagon and joined them into the existing loom.

thanks both for your answers.

i was more concerned about how many 21 watt globes i could run on the one existing wire.

so, if you've done it and the house hasn't burnt down i give it a go.

question answered. im happy.

P.S. I just banged mine out with a stick. i thought they were just plugs, and they were.
