Cab light install

Hey guys.

In the middle of doing a cab light install, went with Recon. Seems like a bad idea so far. The wiring harness they provided comes with a ground and a single pig tail. I'm sure I can ground it anywhere, but I can't figure out where to attach/splice-in the pig tail. Anyone got insight? I looked at Marty's thread and I can't find a similar plug.

As an aside, it looks like Recon poached their instructions off the internet, and included nothing about how to wire this thing in. Doesn't help their tech support is only available during regular business hours, which is when 90% of DIY types are off making a living. Tech support fail on Recon's part.

Thanks for your time.

Mounting Recon cab lights



http://www.emotoman.com/f250/lights/f250lights.htm

secure the connectors at each cab light if they are still using that mismatched junk like in the pictures
nothing like getting all done and having some not work

Found solution, spliced the positive to the #12 behind the light selector switch. I'll just attach the negative wherever.

Whatever, I got it up and running.

I wouldn't reccomend their complete kit, the instructions and parts do not jive at all. also, their plastic base plate is very prone to stripping where the screw for holding the cap goes with minimal force.
