Expert Answers about Tailgate Light Bar


  • Installing the Rampage Light bar on a 2020 Ram 1500
  • The Rampage # RA960137 Tailgate Light Bar you referenced is NOT a fit for your 2020 Ram 1500. However, the Rampage # RA960134 IS a confirmed fit for your Ram. The light bar plugs into your 4-pole trailer lighting connector. If your truck does not have this connector you can install the Hopkins # 41155 Simple Wiring Harness. I have included links to these product pages and a review video.

  • Will The Alpena Trailblaze LED Lights Interfere With The BLIS System On My 2018 Ford F-150
  • I emailed Alpena to get some clarification on their Alpena Trailblaze Tailgate LED Lights, part # ALP77229. I was told that the placement of the LED lights will not block or interfere with the BLIS sensors. However, the newer model years of the Ford trucks, may think that a lightbar is really a trailer when they are hooked up to the 4-way connector due to the power draw of the lights. Alpena has not seen that be an issue with the Trailblaze Tailgate LED Lights, but the lights were launched...

  • Wiring Needed To Use Rampage Light Strip On 2012 Toyota Tundra
  • The Rampage SuperBrite LED Tailgate Light Bar part # RA960134 does connect to a 4-pole flat trailer connector on the Tundra. For that I recommend Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package part # C55774 which will allow you to plug into the factory tow port under the bumper and gives you a 7-way plug and a 4-pole flat to plug your light strip part # RA960134 into.

  • How to Adapt the Putco Strip Light part # P92009-48 to Fit Vehicle 7-Way
  • The wiring of the Putco Strip Light part # P92009-48 is a 4-way for the taillight functions and then a separate white wire that gets ran to the reverse light circuit since that's not carried on a 4-way. So what you would want to do is cut off the 4-way of this and wire the light's wiring to a 7-way like # A7WCB according to the chart I attached.

  • 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 to Install a Tailgate Light Bar on a Trailer Using the Vehicles 4-Way
  • The Putco Red Blade LED Tailgate Combination Light Bar part # P92010-60 which is the lightbar I recommend for your trailer has LED lights so the amp draw will be very minimal. The reason that this is important is because the total amp draw for each circuit on both the trailer and light bar cannot exceed that of the vehicle's trailer lighting circuits. I do not believe you will have any issues because the light bar has LED lights which draw much less power when compared to incandescent....

  • The Rampage SuperBrite LED Tailgate Light Bar # RA960134 that you referenced is really a universal product that should work great on your 2019 Honda Ridgeline. The light bar simply mounts with the included 3M tape between the rear bumper and tailgate. It uses a standard 4-Way connector for power so as long as your Ridgeline is equipped with a 4-Way flat trailer connector this will plug right in. If not you can add one with the Tekonsha T-One # 118778 that will plug into a factory port...

  • 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...

  • Troubleshooting Turn Signals that Quit Flashing When Installing Tailgate Light Bar

  • Can the Access LED Tailgate Light Bar # A90148 be Cut to Fit
  • I spoke with my contact at Access who said that you should be able to cut the LED Tailgate Light Bar # A90148 to fit your specific application but it wouldn't be covered under warranty if the light were to no longer work. The unit is also sealed so you would need to reseal the end that you cut to ensure that the elements stay out of the unit.

  • If you want to do a hardwire install for your Rampage SuperBrite LED Tailgate Light Bar # RA960137 rather than use the 4-pole flat trailer connector you'll want to use a tester like # 40376 to test the truck's wires. This is the only sure way to know which wire carries which lighting function. You'll need a helper in the truck to activate each lighting function while you apply the tester to the wires.

You will have enough height in order to install the bar over the bracket and still have the tailgate fully functional.

  • 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...

This LED light is powered by the 4 way plug that would normally be used to power the lights on a trailer.

I have attached the installation instructions for you below but to summarize, you will first want to plug the 4-way trailer connector on the light bar into the 4-way trailer connector on the vehicle.

  • Troubleshooting Rampage SuperBrite LED Tailgate Light Bar RA960137 That Stays Lit
  • LED-type lights like the Rampage SuperBrite LED Tailgate Light Bar # RA960137 are so electrically efficient that sometimes they will illuminate even when the vehicle wiring harness does not have any lighting functions activated. 4-pole wiring harnesses can sometimes pass enough residual power (even with no function activated) to cause LEDs to operate. This is not a malfunction, just a side-effect of the LED's high efficiency. However, since you mention that your light does not blink...

  • 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.

  • Will Plugging in a Rampage LED Light Bar Disable Backup Sensors on a 2009 Chevy Suburban
  • It is likely that if you were to plug in the 4-Way, # 118384, and then plugged in the Rampage light, # RA960134, it would still shut off the back up sensors. This is because you are teeing into the factory harness so there would still be power draw through the factory wiring. To prevent that from happening you would need to hardwire in a 4-Way to the tail light wiring on your Suburban using # C59236.

  • Can 4 Pole Provided By Tekonsha 118778 Power Putco LED Tailgate Bar
  • Luckily, the 4.2A capacity per circuit for stop/turn lights and the 7.5 amp amps per circuit capacity for running lamps should be sufficient for the lamps you describe. The # P92009-48 draws less than 2 amps. I'm not sure which other LED lights you're using, but since LED lamps use only a tiny fraction of the power used by incandescent lamps, you should be okay. If you'd care to reply with the part numbers of the other lamps you're using, I'd be happy to research their power draw for you.
