4WDrive - - In­stall -

Route the wire up the chas­sis fol­low­ing the fac­tory har­ness to­wards the front of the truck away from any sources of heat. The sup­plied zip ties al­low the cable to be tied in se­curely. The direc­tions say to go to the en­gine com­part­ment and then to the driv­ers’ foot well.

We went through the bot­tom of the cab us­ing the e-brake cable grom­met. If you need to poke a hole, use a grom­met and paint the edge… this is Canada, and rust is a PITA (aka Pain In The Ass). We like these mul­ti­ple size Daystar unit.

De­pend­ing on what truck you have, Pop & Lock direc­tions let you know what har­ness and wires to splice into.

We HATE Scotchlock­s, and loathe their ex­is­tence, but in an ef­fort to get out of our wives’ park­ing space posthaste, we re­luc­tantly used them and have since sol­dered and spliced the con­nec­tions en­sur­ing years of trou­ble free ser­vice.

For those of us just look­ing to keep our tail­gates from grow­ing legs and wan­der­ing the neigh­bour­hood, the Gate De­fender comes in at a rea­son­able price for the se­cu­rity it pro­vides and is not ve­hi­cle spe­cific.
