Plug & Play LED light kit

searching around but didn't see it here- is there a kit out there that is plug and play? I.e. no cutting of the existing wiring for all the tail from lights?

Wipac makes one for ROW trucks but NAS seems to be left out.


thanks
if i missed it in search let me know

NAS trucks have the later style waterproof connectors don't they?

Some lights come with the connectors installed so there should be no wiring changes.

Plug and play is fine if the plugs are good. But time and corrosion make cut/solder/reconnect waterproof a better long term solution.

Does anyone make a kit?
That was my question...

My plugs are fine there is no reason to cut them off

I have the NAS connectors if that is what you need. Male ends attach to the lights, females are to repair corroded connectors on the harness. I think i had them listed for $3 each. Free shipping with a $20 order.

I bought waterproof gm style connectors and a butane solder gun and I'm going for a full swap.

But the 1994 and later trucks have waterproof connectors already and you can buy LEDs with the the connectors installed.

The RN kits don't have them they are bare wire wipac lights.
I haven't seen any since ECR stopped doing them. That I recall.

for instance - bolt on bits... ebay store has these
10 RDX LUX LED REAR NAS Lights kit Easyfit Plinths Relay Defender 1994 onwards | eBay

which come with all the parts but are a DIY for the connectors..

i really wanted to avoid issues with the wiring connections - which is where projects like this usually fail.

I used a set of these for the rear. They are very high quality and waterproof - they need to be since they get sprayed by the rear tires. They come in 2 and 3 conductor sizes, so now I have a single connector for each light.
