Hey yall

I'm working on wiring up my cab clearance lights (risk of future leaks..I know I know) and I'm pretty stumped. I usually have no problem wiring lights, however, these fixtures only have a single wire coming from the lamp assembly, which I'm assuming is the hot wire. So my question is how do these ground? Does the mounting screw through the chrome base ground it? Or do I need to solder a ground wire in the lamp somehow?

Any help is much appreciated.

didn't they come with instructions??

If not, the mounting screw has to be the ground..

Thanks guys :thumbup

It does appear there is a small wire soldered between the socket and the chrome base. Should the mounting screw through the roof suffice as a ground..or do I need to run a ground wire from the mounting screws down into the cab and tie it in further down?

You nailed it Steve! I did end up needing a return ground to a dedicated ground wire in the dash. Simple as that.

Thanks for all your help
