I would give it a 4, not hard at all. You pop out the plactic trim, then remove the metal insert by bending the tabs straight on the underside of the plactic trim. You need to drill a hole in the plastic trim in order to feed the wire for the light. Insert the new sills, feed the wire through the hole and then bend over the new tabs on the uderside of the plastic trim, this secures the new sills to the trim. Then just snap them back in place. Feed the wire under the front trim panel to under the dash. You can wire it anyway you want, but I cut into the underside footwell light wire and attached the wire with wire nuts, this way they come on only when the doors are open. I really like the look and it is an easy upgrade, well worh it.

If you are OK with tools and simple wiring, no problem.

Here's an old post by STIX about the install:

I thought being a Genuine accessory that it would be plug and play, Didn't know you had to wire it yourself.

I've wired stereo systems, auto start, fog lights, subwoofer in the past on different cars - that being said, i dont think this will be too difficult and i really like the way it looks.. when my jeep gets built and delivered i will do this

Hope I'm not hijacking this thread but if anybody's interested in these illuminated door sill guards there's a Mopar dealer selling them through Amazon.com for $97 + $10 shipping. I picked up a set and will install'em this weekend. This is the lowest price I found them at: http://www.amazon.com/Cherokee-2011-...5522661&sr=8-3.

Note that I am in not affiliated with that Amazon dealer but just trying to let you'll know of a good deal.
