    Hello, just wanted to show my tail light upgrade over stock. I will be eventually ordering new housings and circuit boards. Got the 4 hi mod wired up today. Ill get pictures of the wiring later to show the hook ups. Ive also got 3357/3457 bulbs on order as well. Will be getting cree 18w led reverse bulbs later as well. I am using the stock circuit boards for now.
    Left is stock, right is both lit up.

    Looks great, what do you need to do to make this happen? Just add one wire and new bulbs?

    what if you don't have the circuit boards anymore?

    2 wires per side, positive for powering the high filament and then ground the 2 filaments. New bulbs aren't necessary but I needed new bulbs anyway

    I think with the non circuit boards, you use a 3 wire socket and tap the 3rd wire into the stock harness.
