    wiring whelen vertex and tir3?

    I am installing my whelen vertex on my gmc K2500 in rear of truck my question is, can I tie both lights into each other in the back, and get away with just running on cable with the power,ground,sync and pattern wires to the cab, or do I need to run them seperately? I am just trying to save time from having to run a lot of wires. I am also planning on putting my tir3 under the tailgate, and would like to do the same if I could. Thanks in advance

    the sync wires on all 4 need to be connected to each other

    as far as the power and ground you can get a ground in the back and just run a single positive back to them

    I installed vertex in each reverse light and 2 tir3 on each side of the license plate and sync-ed them all together. One vertex with opposite tir3 alternating. They look and work great.

    All same wires connected together, ground to frame and just ran positive to cab.

    Thank you everyone for the good ideas, kitn1mxcc I like the idea of the 3/8 loom, I plan on running extra power in the back for some back up lights that will make it very easy.
