Default A lot of eletrical issues!!!!

Parking/side marker lights not working drivers side. Still popping the fuse!

I thought for sure it was where it was wrecked. Replace tail light harness.

After I took a whole bunch more trim off, turns out it was where all the wiring goes into the lift gate. PO must have cut the boot and butt spliced almost every one right there (A very Crappy Job of it also) lucky it did not catch on fire.

Default A better Splice!

I picked some wire, Heat shrink/solder butt splices and stainless wire sleeve from McMaster

Marked everything very carefully with Scotch wire marker.

Cut it back to make connections in truck and lift gate, with new wires in sleeve/rubber boot
