This tutorial will show you how to install the red or smoked lens LED high mount tail light, reverse/clearance light assembly with optional rear fog lamp for the 2009-2014 Ford F-150 and F-150 Raptor edition (72-020). The installation pictures in this guide are based on the 2014 Ford Raptor, but the steps will apply to most other high mount 3rd brake light installations.
Step 1: Unscrew the bolts securing your OEM 3rd brake light. Twist to unlock the adapters.
Step 2: Pull out the stock halogen clearance/reverse light bulbs from the adapters.
Step 3: Connect the reverse light plug into either clearance/reverse light harness and wrap the other one with black electrical tape. Connect the running light wire to the rear fog/tail light plug. Use these visual guides to help you wire the LED high mount tail light assembly.

Step 4: Plug the included 2-pin adapter into the rear fog/tail light connector if you are working with a Ford F-150 Raptor edition. Connect the reverse light plug into either clearance/reverse light harness and wrap the other connector with black electrical tape. Connect the running light wire to the rear fog/tail light plug.
The 2-pin adapter is included to minimize the number of modifications needed to install this LED high mount tail light assembly.
Make sure you align the red wire of the 2-pin adapter to that of the fog/tail light connector.
Because the stock rear fog/tail light harness is a 3-pin adapter, you may have to try different slots to plug into.
Step 5: Test the rear LED high mounted tail light to make sure it lights up. Once you've confirmed functionality, bolt on the LED reverse and tail light assembly and enjoy!
