Quoted from Elicash:
Looks like you have moved away from pop bumper lamps with the stiff metal legs. Is this due to the poor quality? How do you secure those different ones?
Yes the poor quality and much higher cost of the metal leg version has made me make the switch.
The higher cost isn’t the issue so much but when coupled with lower quality and breaking far too easily or requiring extra steps it is a bad combo.
This is how I use the wire lead style.
It can vary depending on what’s around them or how they are tied to the lamp harness.
The BSD runs them off the GI specifically the orange,white/orange strand.
First some clear tubing this will be used to further insulate the wire that runs through the bumper bracket.
Push it in there until it bottoms out and is long enough to clear the bracket area
Cut them out. Need three.
Now slide over the pass through lead. I use an old bracket to guide my routing. 3D7A74FE-BC97-458A-93D4-7D70804F805D (resized).jpeg
Stapled down. Critical not to press too hard on these when stapling because you can pierce the insulation or even cut the wire right in half.

I then use screw terminals to make similar junctions to the factory one with the exception of color coordinating and giving some wire to either make a plug or jumper to a socket depending on how it maps out once I place the harness and other parts.
