Default 01 Tail Light Wiring Harness (KY)

I have a complete tail light wiring harness, MINUS the bulb sockets, from an 01 (could be an 02 or so, I'm not 100% sure) that has the 2 bulb setup.

All the connectors look to be in good condition, none of the wires were cut, everything was unplugged.

I bought this wiring harness a while ago with the intention of using it to mod my tail lights into a 2 bulb setup, but I went in another direction completely.

I'd like to get $20 + shipping/insurance for the wiring harness.

I believe the round connector will plug directly into the round connector on your truck, but the bulb socket plugs will probably be different, as they were on my truck.

You'd either need to splice in your bulb sockets to the wiring harness or grab some of the 01 style bulb sockets to plug-in to the harness.
I'm not 100% sure, but hopefully someone who's done this will chime in & shed some more light for us.

I'm pretty sure the Junk Yard hunters could round up a couple sets of the correct bulb sockets too

Clinton sold me a 01 tail lights which included the sockets.

As my truck is a 96 (3 bulbs) I installed turn lights in the reverse socket, and an external reverse light.
But the big question is: if I remove my original harness and replace with yours, do i need the T conector to transform 3 to 2 bulb setup or is this a stright replace?

I think the round connector should plug right into your existing plug (the one your current tail light wiring harness connects to).

As long as your bulb holders have a base that will plug into these connectors, I think you should be good to go & it should work like the newer 2 bulb trucks do. Again, I'm not 100% sure, never tried it myself.


I was going to do the same thing you're wanting to do, but I didn't have the 4 bulb sockets that plug into the 01 harness.
Right now I'm using a set of 01 tails that I modded & added a 2nd hole for the turn signals in the same red area as the brake lights & used the clear sections for my reverse led's.

If you have the T trailer adapter, it should plug right in between the two so you'll have a trailer wiring plug too.

I've tried plugging these newer 2 bulb harnesses into a 99 with 3 bulb factory. Lights did not work properly. It's been a long time since I tried this, but if I remember correctly, I think running lights came on, but but no other functions worked.
