Well here is which wires to tap into https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showth...license+wiring

If its a stock carrier just run it through the tailgate plug and follow the factory wiring with zip ties from the tail gate to the right rear of the tub.

Here is my set up, they also make one that connects to a standard carrier.

I got led bolt lights to light up the plate and the bottom plate holes have led turn signals and brake lights all in one.

I did the same, when I had no tire carrier.

And now with my Genright, I just drilled holes in it and ran the wire up the tube and in behind the passenger taillight.

Yeah, I notched mine too. I have the wire for the plate light, rear view camera and the Rigid 2x2 I use as a backup light all going in there in the loom.

Secret compartment alpha: take a look at the foam directly under farthest rear right side of the tub, push foam out of the way and you have access to the tailight cavity so you can wire everything up. There is also a plug under the carpet on that side in the tub if you need to run anything into the tub or tap into any wires up there.

If I was mounting to the bumper, I'd probably route the wire through it and up through the tub behind the passenger taillight. You need to bypass the gate all together.

I wired my ORO tag light through the tailgate and along the stock wiring loom that runs into the passenger side. Then tapped into the wires behind the pass side tailight. Took some drilling to the tailgate and some fishing but the wires are completely hidden.

Right into the tailgate.... Because I mounted the light to my plate and tramp stamp. I didn't want any wires visible so I drilled a hole in the tailgate directly behind the light and wired it in. I will post up a close up pic.
