ORO Light Install

I'll start by saying I've read multiple installs for this on JKO, but none addressed my questions:

I have a Teraflex HD hinged carrier with stock 3rd brake light. I would like to install the ORO in it's place, but maintain the factory connectors in off chance I put it back to stock for whatever reason.

Would this be what I would use: http://www.quadratec.com/products/55...FQmQaQodhqEBLg

Or does someone have a better suggestion?

Thanks in advance!

The connectors you linked to are for the taillights. They won't work for the 3rd brake light connector.

I'm in the process of tracking down exactly what connector FCA uses for the 3rd brake light. I have a drawing of it, but no idea if it's a Tyco, Deutsch, AMP, etc.

just leave enough wire on the factory plug, cut it off, save it with the factory light.
Solder/crimp ORO to the 2 factory wires. You have to run an additional wire to the taillight to get the white led's to light up the license plate if you are using that option.

here's some notes from a writeup i did a while back...

JK- adding led 3rd brake light/ license plate to spare tire location
Use the 2 wires from existing 3rd brake light plus you will need to run 1 wire either thru the tailgate or under right rear to the right rear taillight
Factory white/yellow tracer is brake light positive- ORO red wire
Factory black wire is ground- ORO black wire
New wire to taillight white/purple tracer is parking light- ORO green wire
