Exclamation Third Brake Light- Help

Hi all. I am looking to purchase a LED third brake light. It has of course a brake light, then it has reverse lights as well in it. My stock only has a brake light. My question for you is, if I get it and hook it up to my stock connector, will the reverse light on the new brake light work when I place it in reverse? I would very much appreciate the help as I would love to buy the item. So nice =P. Thanks for your time, take care.

You would need to run separate wires. And as far as I know, the clear lights are not reverse lights, they are bed lights that turn on when you open the doors.

Running the wires would be some work. I just want a simple plug and play type thing. And it says reverse. Even when I open my doors, it doesn't turn white or anything. I have a straight red stock third light. I want LED brake and reverse. I'll give you the link.

Because your truck is not currently wired for that.

It would work, if you wired it up to the reverse lights. I personally think that the cargo light option is cooler, and a lot easier to wire. Your dome light is right there, ya know?
