I am very much looking forward to seeing this! I may do this conversion if it works well.

That was my bad. It did not even cross my mind to do a before video until I had them both set up. Sorry about that.

They have great reviews and highly recommended by a few that have them on their WK's and other reviews i found online. There are quite a few vids on youtube but most are the switchback version. There is one vid with the red led's installed on an Escalade and the difference between stock and LED bulb is huge, check it out:

Re: 2014 Rear Stop/Turn LED Bulbs

Thanks for the videos looks great! I just got done installing my rear LED's over the weekend and it does look a ton better! I recorded a video of the LED vs Stock comparison but for some reason my phone is having issues uploading to YouTube.

Anyways, for being a nooby and doing this for the first time, I found it really wasn't that hard to do and the instructions you wrote up worked great!

Also I noticed, if you don't want to go through the extra work, the resistors are not necessarly needed. The rear signals actually flash normal without them.

The only thing that flashes rapidly is the turn signals on the side mirrors. So for that reason, I still installed the resistors so that everything sync'd up.

But if you don't mind the mirror signals flashing a little faster than the front and rears, then you don't really have to go through the hassel of installing the resistors.

Anyways, Love the mod! Glad I did it!

I saw on the side there is two screws that just come right off, but after that is there anything else you have to unlatch?

When I took the screws off it still felt like it was latched on somewhere, at least it was stuck on there pretty good. Do you just have to pull really hard to get it off? I didn't want to pull to hard fearing I might break it.

Wanted to hear your response first before I tried forcing it off any further.

Thanks!

Glad to hear it all went good! Instructions can sometimes be a little more intimidating than when you are doing it.

When I installed the LED to test them i saw that they flashed at normal rate, but the dash indicator did a fast flashing and it would have driven me nuts.

But glad it all worked out with no issues.

How you are describing it was exactly how I tried to take them off as well. But because I did not want to pull to hard and break anything either i did some research and what you need to do is remove the trim panel on the inside of the lift gate. It is just being held by clips. So if you pull on the trim panel it will come right off and give you access to the lights. Just be careful because the courtesy lights are attached to the trim panel so you might want to remove those and then plug them back in when done with the reverse lights.

Look at this link:

2014 replacing bulbs with LED's interior , replace headlamp/fog

They have a picture on how to remove the lift gate trim panel.
