2009 Ford Escape

I still have the unit installed on my 2009 Ford Escape. I got tired of people coming up on me because they "don't see me" making a turn or slowing down. The factory lights should have been enough, but for some people that live in my area, they must not be enough. The light strip has helped a lot & recommend for anybody with a truck or SUV. Just be careful in VA. I found out that its illegal but as long as the cable is disconnected at time of inspection, its ok to run. I also have another one installed on the back of my Trailmanor camping trailer. That is why I mainly got the light strip. Originally, the trailer has 2 large turn/stop lights, but was trying to have a couple more, just in case people "don't see them". Again, I would recommend to anybody that needs stop/turn/backup. I would recommend if you need a lot of backup light, do not get this one. This lights up ok, but I need another strip that is dedicated just as a backup light. 408148

  • How to Wire Truck Tailgate With Connector Cut Off
    On the 4 pole on your Colorado, the right turn/brake lamp circuit is fed by the green wire, the left turn/brake circuit is fed by the yellow wire, the running lamp circuit is fed by the brown wire and the white wire is the ground. From what I can see, the wires on the Bully Fire Strip aren't really color coded, but it appears that the ground wire has a white stripe on it. So your best bet would be to use a 12 volt power source like a car battery, ground the wire with the white stripe to...

  • Does The Bully Fire Strip LED Light Have Separate White Lights for Reverse Function?
    Yes, the reverse lights on the Bully Fire Strip LED Lights # BLS-1103 are white. This LED strip has both white and red LED lights on the strip to produce different colored lights for the different functions that the light performs. Because this LED light performs multiple functions, and your existing lights are incandescent, you may experience a hyper-flashing when the turn signal is applied. If you experience this, you will need to add a load resistor similar to the Putco # P230004C-2...

  • Compatibility of LED Tailgate Light Bar with Spare Lowering Input Location on 2017 Ram 1500
    The Bully Light Strip - Stop, Tail, Turn, Reverse - 4-Pole Flat # BLS-1103 doesn't really compensate for the tire lowering input at all. You will just need to mount it so that it will allow for the clearance you need. I've attached a photo of a similar truck install for you to see the access point you are referring to with a similar light bar installed for a reference.

  • Running Wiring For Bully Light Bar At Back Of 40-Ft Fifth Wheel Trailer
    There are a couple of ways you can run the wires for the Bully Light Bar, part # BLS-1103. The easiest way would be to attach the light bar wiring to the wiring you have at the rear of your fifth wheel trailer. That is if you can access the wiring easy enough either by getting to the wires under your trailer or by removing the lights and getting to the wiring behind them. Another way would be to install a junction box like part # 38656 on your fifth wheel and attach the trailer wiring...

  • Adding a Second 7-Way and LED Light Strip to the Back of a 2011 Ford F-150
    A 4-Way would not work anyway because a 4-Way flat trailer connector does not have a reverse light function. What you could do is use wiring harness # 41157. It will tee in line with your factory connectors and provide an additional 7-Way trailer connector. For an LED light strip for the back of your 2011 Ford F-150 that has a reverse function we have # BLS-1103 from Pilot. These are all 60 inch long models. All of these products would normally plug into a 4-Way and then you would...

  • Fit and Compatibility of Pilot Tailgate Fire Strip to 2009 Ford Escape
    I was able to go out to the warehouse and measure the Bully Fire Strip LED Light # BLS-1103. The thickness of the LED and bracket is .179 of an inch or 11/64. The overall height of the LED and bracket is .786 of an inch or 25/32 and the height of just the LED portion is .476 of an inch or 15/32. The light strip should not be removed from the housing of which it is incased, this will damage the function of the light and void the warranty. If the above measurements do not suit your...

  • LED Light Bar for 2018 Ford F-150 With Backup Assist System
    There is a great option guaranteed to work with your 2018 Ford F-150, though the Bully Fire Strip # BLS-1103 will cause issues due to that system. Instead, the LED light bar that is going to give you the stop, tail, turn, and reverse light functions and is 100 percent compatible with the backup assist system is the Putco Red Blade LED Tailgate Light Bar # P92010-60. As you can see by the cut out of the linked installation instructions I added, Putco has designed this in order to work...

  • Which Wire on the Bully Fire Strip LED Light Part # BLS-1103 Goes to the Reverse Lights
    There are only two wiring connections that you need to make for the Bully Fire Strip LED Light part # BLS-1103. The white wire coming from the control box which is for the reverse light circuit, not the ground and then the 4-way plug. It sounds like you are trying to use part of the test button/battery that comes with the unit but this will need to be removed before you install this on your 2014 Ford F-150. I have attached a photo for you that should help explain this better. The light...

  • LED Tailgate Light Bar BLS-1103 Installation in 2017 F-150 Lariat with BLIS System
    The Bully Fire Strip LED Tailgate Light # BLS-1103 can be spliced into the wiring you'll find along the passenger side frame rail, instead of connecting to the 4-pole trailer wiring that might cause malfunction of the BLIS alert system. Since this light strip has to hard-wire into the reverse light circuit anyway, you'll just cut off the 4-pole plug and use quick splice connectors # SWC502905-1 for all connections other than ground.

  • How Does Bully Fire Strip LED Light # BLS-1103 Typically Wire to Truck
    The wiring of the Bully Fire Strip LED Light # BLS-1103 is actually pretty easy. Basically it would just plug into a 4-way trailer connector and you'd be set. Your truck should have a 4-way trailer wiring connector but if it did not you'd have to install one with the part # 18252 which is a fit for your 2014 Ford F-150.

  • Tapping into a Reverse Light Wire to Install Bully LED Tailgate Light Bar on 2012 Ford F-150
    There are a couple of ways to wire the reverse light circuit from your 2012 Ford F-150 to the Bully light bar # BLS-1103. First, if your truck has both a 4- and 7-Way connector (or even just a 7-Way by itself) you can tap into the wire that goes to the center pin on the 7-Way. The other way is to use a circuit tester such as # 40376 or a meter if you have one to test the wires going to a reverse light bulb. Chock the truck wheels, have someone sit in the vehicle and apply the emergency...

  • 4-Way Plug for Bully Fire Strip
    I may have a solution for you, but there is no direct replacement for a busted 4-way plug on your Bully Fire Strip LED Light # BLS-1103. I recommend trying out the the Hopkins Endurance Quick-Fix Replacement 4-Way Flat Trailer Connector # HM48192 or Quick Fix 4 Pole Flat Trailer End # HMC20031. I've added links to video reviews of these products for you to take a look at.

  • Can 4-Way and 7-Way be Used at the Same Time for Trailer and Tailgate Lights on 2012 Ford F-150
    Yes, you can definitely do that. I have attached a link to our selection of LED light strips that are compatible with the tailgate on your 2012 Ford F-150, like the popular Pilot Bully Fie Strip # BLS-1103, and then you can use an adapter like the Pollak # PK12716 for your trailer. The only time that this should be an issue is if your trailer has a LOT of lights, but since these strips are all LED and don't pull much power I don't see why you'd have any problems. If you wanted to...

    You're right on track here. I see no difference in mounting this to a well prepared steel truck surface or a well prepared steel camper bumper. The Bully Fire Strip LED Light part # BLS-1103 will be a great way to add some additional lighting to the rear of your camper.

  • Wiring Tailgate Light Strip to 2015 GMC Canyon
    I understand your winter weather concerns; I attended college at SUNY Oswego (situated on the shore of Lake Ontario) way back when and I can STILL remember how well wind-driven "lake effect" snow can find its way into the sleeves and collar of even the best winter coat. I get it. The light strip I suggest for your GMC Canyon is Pilot's Bully Fire Strip LED Light # BLS-1103 because it has a standard 4-pole flat type connector that will avoid the need to use any adapters. It simply plugs...

  • 2019 Ford Ranger LED Tailgate Light Causes Trailer Light Out Error Code and Disables Backup Camera
    I have a solution for you but the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 7-Way Trailer Connector # 22124 will not work since it connects to the same tow package port your existing factory 7 and 4-way connector plugs into. When you plug in a tailgate bar, like # BLS-1103 (or any accessory that uses lights) into your factory wiring, it tells your vehicle that there is a trailer connected, which is why it disables the backup camera lines, as you mentioned. Otherwise, the sensors would constantly...

  • Light Bar for Reverse Lights That Will Work on Back of 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500
    There may be a solution for you, though each of the back-up lights we have available are for trailers and are going to be recess or surface mount, so if your topper is at an angle the lights will be as well. A better option for you would be the Bully Fire Strip LED Light # BLS-1103, which are LED lights and will plug into your 4-way to give you additional running, brake, turn, hazard, and reverse lights. If you want to really light things up you could use a license plate mounting bracket...

  • Comparing Under Tailgate Light Bars for a 2012 Toyota Tundra
    The only difference between a light strip and a light bar, like # RA960134, is that the strip is flexible and the bar is rigid. A bar would provide better protection to the lights so that is a benefit it has over a strip. A strip on the other hand being flexible allows it to be used with more applications. Since you do not like the strip type we do have several light bars you could use on your 2012 Toyota Tundra including # RA960134 (stop, tail, turn). There are additional options...

    The Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package - 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # C55384 is not a fit for your vehicle. If you have the factory 7-way, then I recommend using the Reese Multi-Plug Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package - 7-Way and 4-Way Flat Trailer Connectors # 74682 to allow you to hide that 4 way connection to your tailgate light bar. The sensors in your 2016 are not as sophisticated as the newer models that change the other components to a towing...

  • Wiring Harness to Operate LED Tailgate Light Bar on 2001 Dodge Dakota 4WD
    Most tailgate light bars use a 4-pole flat type trailer wiring connector, so the vehicle will need to have such a harness. If the connector on your son's light bar uses a 4-pole flat connector like the one in the linked photo, and if the Dakota has no existing trailer connectors, then the part you referenced, T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118329, is an excellent choice. You can refer to the linked installation video, which shows a 2001 Dakota. This harness installs easily, by plugging...
