    Just installed an LED third brake light from a '97 Burban on my Jimmy. Looks sweet! I'm working on a pic.

    Cool! I wanna see pics! Do you ever take the hard top off? If so, do you just disconnect it?

    Yeah, it has a diconnect just like the front dome light... a few seconds to undo and the top still comes off. Makes the Beast look newer than an 83, which is my intention.

    Get some pic's up when you get a chance. How did you route the wires inside?

    I did tonight... see them at: http://community.webshots.com/user/beefcake83
    I snaked them inside from the top under the light base like on the suburban.... took a hole saw and made a hole at the base of the left back corner inside of the topper similar to the one that the dome light wiring comes out of.... ended up making a second hole almost in the upper corner too because of inside structural interferance stopping the wire feeding. Then put in a disconnect connector so the topper can still be removed in a hurry. First tapped into the left tail light and found that it flashed with the left turn signal on... duh! Than tapped into the white wire off of the brake light switch.
