I had the sequential signal kit on my '10 (previous owner mod - Mopar kit). It was fine, but I thought it looked a little "Mustang-y". Another way to go is what I did on my '14. I just swapped out the one-element sockets for two-element sockets on the deck lid portion of the tail lamps, and ran additional wires from the harness. Interestingly, the factory bulbs in the center portion are already two-element; don't know why. Now I have full-width brake and signal lights instead of just the ends in the quarter panels.

Not difficult to do, but does require pulling some wire from the trunk, and cutting the tail lamp harness in the center lamp. I did it right with soldered and shrink tube connections, and will pick up a salvage harness sometime when the opportunity presents so that I can put it back easily if I ever want to (which I doubt).

In my opinion, looks 100% better than stock, and mimics the '70 Challenger function for a more "retro" look. Also, the extra visibility doesn't hurt. Either way; sequential kit, or solid full-width lamps, it looks better than the factory set-up.

Cheers!

I may look into this. I like the sound of that better actually.
I Want More visibility but I also don't want it to look Mustang like.

Now to find the dual element socket part #'s...

How many did you end up using? 2 or 4 im guessing..

Sounds like you wired the center sockets in parallel with the outer edge ones?
Yup, I used 4 sockets; two each side of the back-up lamp. I'll PM you later on how I did the change and what all is required.

Cheers!
