    I put my new bed on last nite, rouged the wiring harness off my old bed and installed it. Plugged it up to the truck, NO TAIL LIGHTS. No juice what so ever to the plug that runs from the cab. Checked the fuses and all good. Dashlights are functional. It had juice before I took the old bed off.

    What might it be ole wise CK5 gods??

    I would think that the body mounts would electrically isolated the bed from the frame. Is there a ground wire that needs to be hooked up? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    IIRC, there is a ground behind the plastic tail light housing on the drivers side.
