Sorry about the damage, but thanks for the heads up! I'm waiting for mine to arrive and now I know what area to avoid.

Re: Taillight solutions-just ordered mine.

I received the LED foglight + tail-light kit from Tailight Solutions earlier in the week. I was very impressed with the wire harness and overall quality of work. It shows that Ken takes pride in the work he does.

It was a PITA to remove the rear red reflectors. One side refused to come out, but eventually I was able to remove it. Routing the wires was not a problem, but trying to find a good place for the resistor took some time. Seeing 04JGCLMTD47 experience kinda made me paranoid. LOL

I decided against tapping the running lights to obtain the running/parking option with the fog-lights. The fogs do light up when the brake light and turn signals are used and it looks good. It'll catch the attention of other drivers which is what I wanted.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to install the LED tail-lights since they refused to light up for me. I tried them every which way and even contacted Ken. He replied quickly with some advice, but it didn't work either. I'm sending the bulbs back and he'll be sending me a replacement pair. So I'll install them as soon as they come in and report back.

Pictures are below. I used the hazards so I could grab a couple pics since I was the only person around.

Re: Taillight solutions-just ordered mine.

Re: Taillight solutions-just ordered mine.

Nice job!
I ended up mounting my resistors right behind the rfluk lenses on the metal. It was the only place I could get a drill in to tap them with screws without taking off the bumper. I didn't trust the 3m tape lasting long after being heated up after time. The last thing I need is it dangling around in there melting all the harnesses.

Pricing depends on the kit that you want. You should head over to tailight solutions website and see what seems best for you.

The issue with the bulbs is a mystery. They just wouldn't light up when plugged into the socket. The OEM halogen bulb works fine with the harness so this leads me to believe something is not right with the bulbs themselves. Hopefully the replacement bulbs will work just fine.

That was my second spot that I considered mounting to. I was a little concerned about it being exposed to the elements from below. I ended up placing it where another member installed theirs (it's in a separate topic/post). They reported that the tape held up pretty well. I'll definitely keep an eye on it since I'm also concerned about the tape and stuff melting.

Hopefully neither one of us will experience any further issues with this mod!

Re: Taillight solutions-just ordered mine.

Do you really think you will see a difference in the taillights for the 2014 ? Debating if it's even worth buying do to the LED strip that we already have so how much brighter can it get.

I can't tell you for sure since I couldn't install the bulbs that came with the kit. I can see that with the LED running lights you may not see as much of an esthetic difference as on a 2013, but I think that the included LED bulbs will give off a more pronounced red color than the halogen and give you the desired effect when braking during daytime hours.

The reason I got the whole kit was because I liked the idea of having additional lights in the back which will serve as an added safety tool.

I will definitely report back when I get my replacement bulbs.
