    There is a wiring harness but it's essentially the same as the regular one with an extra wire and one more socket.
    I've installed them on my GT if you need a break down. It's very easy to do.

    My wiki article


    If you can't get a hold of a Cobra harness, I can tell you how to change your existing one to accommodate it.

    Honestly, I don't besides Ford. Mine came with my lights. :(

    Even with the harness, I still had to cut off the pigtail (different than the normal one), splice in the pigtail from my factory harness so it would plug in, and route one additional wire. You could wire an adapter to avoid cutting up the harnesses, but I wasn't worried about it.

    Sorry, man. I had been fighting a nasty flu all weekend and spent most of Saturday and Sunday wrapped in a blanket full of medicine. :eek:

    Now, that is the Cobra harness, however it will not simply plug into your current wiring system. This is where I said I cut the pigtail off of my old lights and the new one and put the old one on the new one. Matching color for color, that left a green wire leftover that I ran to the 3rd brake light.

    You'll also need a different flasher or it'll blink like crazy. Check the wiki link I posted earlier for a part #. I promise I will take pictures of everything I did this Saturday morning and have them posted for you. I'll give you any help you need until they work flawlessly.
    :)

    hey man i totally understand i had the flu a few weeks back and it wasnt kool. thats kool that it comes with the harness. that would be great if u can get me some pictures of the step by step and how u wraped the wires and what to cut before i mess everything up. like the one to the brake light. also by flasher what exactly do u mean? do u mean the bulb in the yellow spot of the light? cause if so it already has the bulb if not can u find a pix of it or something so i can know what it looks like. about how long did it take u to install? also do u have to cut the wire under the dash and if i cut it can i put it back if i ever wanted to remove the lights?

    PS: you rock kuplex!!

    well i know someone that works at a ford parts and service depo and he located a pair for me looking through the ford database to see if any other fords had them and he did so i asked him to grab them for me cause i know how rare they are. and he got me each one for 120 plus shipping so it wasnt that bad. just the installation is going to be the hard part
