Wish I had seen this earlier. I bought a light (4 1/2"x2 1/4") from and I am building a bracket to bolt on to the stock tire carrier. This will give a factory effect but the center cap idea would have been a lot cheaper.

Just ordered the kit. I'm a little confused on disassembling the original wiring. Appears I need to cut the factory wires just short of the bulb + cut the rubber grommet where those wires enter that upper housing + pry open the lower assembly to remove the wiring bundle.

The cut wires get spliced into the ordered pigtail.

Sound right?

I figure to cut the factory wires right next to the old bulb...I can always trim off more as needed once I get it all removed.

Here is my Jeep where I put in the 3rd brake light in the center of spare wheel. Super easy to do and looks great. When you remove tire brake light stays on ofcourse
