brake,reverse,turn lightbar how too.

i bought a tailgate light bar (fits between the bumper and tailgate) with brake, revers,e turn signals. come with the 4 pin trailer connector. a white white for the power reverse and a red power wire off the battery. my only question is do i need to run a wire to the front of the vehicle off the battery or can i get it some where off the back?

What function does the red wire feed power to on your light bar? Does it have something like auxiliary work lights incorporated into it?

Huh. Not sure why it would require a separate power source when the power for your turn, stop, and reverse lights would be obtained by tapping into your existing circuit for those wires via the 4 way trailer plug. Have you tried just hooking it up using the 4 way trailer plug and tapping the white wire into your reverse lights to see how it functions without supplying power to the red wire?
