Default LEER Install

Anybody ever do a Leer install?

The guy before me had one on here but it looks kinda like a novice install. The weather stripping is hangin out the side in one spot. Also, anybody know anything about the wiring for the brake light and the dome light?

The light is tapped into the brake light harness and the interior dome light into the parking lights. If you want to be able to turn on the dome light another time than when the parking lights are on, you'll need to run a wire on up to the cab and tap into the dome light there.

Weather stripping is just remove the old and put on new after cleaning the surface up some. Rubbing alcohol works well for that.

Oh, don't forget to disable the cab brake light and bed lights. Removing the bulbs should do the trick.

rip off the old cap tape and apply new and reinstall cap with clamps. you can get cap tape at any cap retail place. as for the brake light you need to really make a signature with your year vehicle.

1980's-1992 and 1998-2010

you need a brake light blink suppressor module thing. lol.. idk the right name I picked it up at a cap store. problem being its a single bulb tail light meaning the brake and blink are in one and you dont want the 3rd brake to flash

1993-1997 you have blink light so just pick one brake wire and jump it.

as for the interior light run a constant power back to the cap from the truck

Problem is, there isn't a LEER dealer around here. Closest one is almost an hour away
