I did this to my 2011 R/T. Works really nice. Patience, patience, patience!(LOL) I would really not attempt this until I had a set of interior tools to take apart the trunk buttons and the various and assorted other pieces you will need to dismantle. The tools are not expensive, around $10.00 for a set (@ Northern tools or any parts store) and are CHEAP compared to the frustration and buttons you will break and need to replace without them. Every time you turn on your signals you will grin, knowing how cool they are!
Just did this on my 2013. Agreed that the "brown wire" pin removal is the toughest part. Patience here and all else will go smooth. Took about an hour with most of my time spent on the wire/pin removal. Worth it, though!
Thank you for all the tips !!!!
Well I didn't get to do it Sunday but today was the day. After looking over the instructions a few hundred times I felt I was ready but still very nervous about the splicing of wires for the trunk switch as even looking at the directions still confused me.
So I started at 1pm, disassembling the light housings after of course disconnecting the battery then trim pieces. Side note, even with tool very easy to break plastic buttons. I decided to start with the most difficult section first, the center.
After laying it out on the table and going over the instructions again about splicing, bamm, made total sense now, the rest was a breeze. I am a "slow and steady wins the race " type I finished at 4pm. Not the hour everyone says but now that I have done it, 45 mins would not be out of the question.
Review of product: fantastic and very well thought out. The sequential lights are a blast and look great IMO.
For those of you that opted out of doing this, your missing out as it is well worth the headache of splicing wires as once its laid out, simple.
