New rear lights wired up. These tail lights don't come with globe holders and the factory globe holders dont fit in the holes where the globes mount. I bought some generic globe holders and modified the lights to suit. I had to drill them all out and dremel out new locking slots for them. Then wire them up and install in the vehicle

Installed and all working. Notice that I made both left and right reverse lights work. The patrol has terrible reverse lights so having both work is great.

Damn nice work there Anthony!!! :thumbup:

Must say the reverse lights on the photo's looks super bright! I tried LEDs but was very disappointed with the outcome.... :thumbdown:

The fitment of the fridge makes me wonder.... :biggrin:

I have the exact fridge and have contemplated mounting it. I was always worried about the ingres it would cause in the 2nd row footwell vs the gear lever spacing in front. But the rear ingres looks marginal in these photos....

great job
