LED help!!!!!!!

Ordered the 60" scanning tailgate led light bar from recon off stealth automotive but i am not very good at electrical work... the flat four plug in is fine but i tried looking for a better write up to help with the white wire (backup lights) and red power wire (doesnt seem long enough to reach the cab) is there an easier way than pulling off my dash for the red??? I have a long bed supercab 2000... please help......

The white wire you can probably tap in the reverse light wire behind your taillight assembly.

What is the red power wire for? Brake?

Shouldn't the power wire be in the flat four plug? Why is there a separate power wire? I just hard wired my light bar into my trailer plug wiring so I didn't have a flat four plugged in at all times. White wire just tap into your reverse lights on your tail lights.

Then what are the wires on the flat 4 plug? Right turn left turn and brake? Sounds strange it doesn't use the power source with the flat 4. Just hard wire it its easy.
