Say I want to add some fancy lighting but refuse to tap into/cut manufacturer wires. Instead, I want to make new harness to split between OEM harness and the new light mods.
Where can I cat these plugs?

Thank you.

Molex has a lot of automotive connectors, which connectors are you looking for?

I would like to add a long LED bar below the tailgate which will require to "tap in" to the tail lights, so I'll probably need both male/femail tail light connectors - one that plugs to the light assembly, anopther one that plugs to the harness, I will make a new harness with those two and I'll be able to tap into "my" harness for the LED bar, not to the OEM harness. This way, if anything 'happens', I can always quickly go back to original.

Do you happen to have the part numbers for those connectors? If not I know there was one thread where someone posted part numbers for one of the tail light connectors. These can also be found in PTS or OASIS if you have access to either of those.

Thanks @dolsen , I do not have the part numbers and no clue what PTS or OASIS are :) . Doesn't have to be OEM, can be aftermarket connectors as well. I just want to preserve the original wiring and add stuff with an easy option to go back to original.

Understood, sometimes you can get the Ford connector part number and cross reference it to a molex (or other manufacturer) part number. PTS is a dealer site used for repair manuals and wiring diagrams. You or I can purchase a 72 hour pass for about $22. I have used it to get several connector part numbers in the past.

Use the link below, you'll have to create an account, but it is free. Make sure you select the 72 hour pass. The default is a 1-year pass that costs $2700. There's quite a lot of good info on there as well

Unless you have a strong DIY desire to make these types of connectors, I would recommend spvparts.com. You can also find their videos on YouTube where they discuss various connectors, harnesses, and install.

I've used them for lighting on my Raptor and their connectors and harnesses are top notch. Customer service is terrific as well.

So access (any access, even 72 hours) gives you access to all manuals and wiring diagrams?

Yes, everything that is available on PTS is available to you regardless of the duration of your purchase.

OASIS has more info, but it’s pretty much exclusive to dealers and FOMOCO employees. I used to have access years ago to OASIS, but I didn’t understand what it was then and used it very little
