    Does anyone know how many wires are inside the cord of the magnetic mount model? Question because i want to extend the length of the cord and need to know if i can splice those wires?

    3, they are the same as the perm mount ones. They have a power/red ground/black and one that switches the patterns. Usually white.

    So if i cut and splice them, they should still operate normally from the switch?

    Yup you will be good to go. If you mess up the cig lighter end you can use any on off switch. pick a pattern you like and tape that one off

    i bought the mag mount units so i can use the cig lighter switch. i took the cig adapter apart and flush mounted the switch from the end of that onto an aluminum panel. i made a 3 wire extension harness that goes from under the dash and sill plates up the back of the cab and through the 3rd brake light housing up to the bar. really simple. this way you dont have to find another 3 way momentary switch.
