Back up wire only

I have blacked out my tail lights and flipped the handle it looks sweet. I'm using a light bar it's off during the day until you hit the brakes, use signals, or use reverse. I had tapped into the tail light harness for the reverse light but at night only red is supposed to be on always but as long as I am tied into that harness both red & and white are on constant. anyone know where I can pull reverse signal or can suggest a route for running a line. The bar came with a plug just to plug right in but the reverse has to be hard wired in I can do with out it but, it would be nice to have some light too see.

If you want the light to come on when the transmission is in reverse, you could wire it into the existing back up light circuit.

Where is the liht bar mounted? If it's at the back of the truck, you have to find the wire that powers the stock back-up lights under the vehicle, and join in to that. Probably have to make your own junction.
