There are 2 screws just inside the bed of the truck that you need to unscrew. The light simply pops out when those are removed. Follow the cable to the plug located near the rear wheel well under the truck and unplug the old light. Run the cable from the new light through and connect it to where the old light was plugged in, screw in the two screws and that's it!
