Alot of guys are running the VLED license plate reverse light along with a curt harness adapter so there is no need to splice into the factory harness.

This light is not compatible with the multi function tailgate.

Ended up ordering the Brackets, Install was 100% play and play no drilling or splicing factory wires the way I ended up doing it. Part numbers are below for products used and some pictures of the lights on the truck. High quality Product from ZroadZ. Only issue with bracket and using rough country lights is the lights are a little short as shown in the picture, simple fix installing a few washers or a spacer.

ZRoadz Bracket: Z384821
Rough Country Light: 70706BL
Curt Trailer Adapter Harness: 56584
Curt Trailer Harness (not nessasary but cleaner install) : 58550

NYC unfortunately
Has anyone tried out the Zroadz Backup light bracket below? Looking for a way to mount some lights without drilling any holes, so everything is reversible.
FYI, lot of options. Unless Vleds were updated there are issues with rubbing on the tailgate.

I did this MOD super easy! I was done with in an hour and only spent $120 on everything needed for the job( light, T-harness, and 5 way plug) I now have an option to use a trailer that is wired with a 5 way flat harness.

I also have the VLED, I just tapped into my reverse signal though. In case any of you don't know, the tailgate on our trucks will make contact with the VLED light when it's all the way down. I put a small strip of black foam across the top of my light to pad it. Don't notice it's there and helps protect the paint on the tailgate.

Do you have LED tail lights?

I bought the Vled plate lamp too. Haven’t installed it yet. I plan to just mount it upside down on the bottom of the plate to avoid issues with the tailgate.
