    How do you get to the wire? Is it possible to plug the roof strobe into the wire that chevy has installed?

    The dealer had know idea. He wanted me to cut a hole in the top of my truck.

    I just snapped off the plastic moldings on drivers side headliner, reached in grabbed wire (just laying in there) pulled it through the third brake light and wired strobe. Piece of cake. I did have to carve a little of the plastic on the brake light so it would sit proper but you wouldn't even know.

    P.S. I have a 2003 Chevy 2500hd extended cab with back rack.

    Ditto.

    I just did it this weekend. Be careful when you push the fish tape through the foam that is blocking the hole behind the brakelight that it doesn't end up pushing through the fabric of the HL:angry:

    I mounted my light to a piece of PT decking that I attached to my TracRac. 5/16 (I think) bolt heads will slide down into the top rail which allows you to mount anything on it. I used stainless steel hardware. I also went to good old Walmart and got a trailer wiring harness for $5.97 so I can unplug it if I need to. The other end of the trailer plug will fit behind the brakelight in the off season.
