although I have no idea how you managed to reach behind the radio trim piece to pop it out. I just kind of grabbed the corner of the cubby and pulled gently to start it off
Some threads prior have mentioned that those of us with the H/K radio will also have a sat receiver in the spot the OP pulls from, keeping our hand from fitting behind the unit. Maybe this stopped you as well?

Would the dealer be able to install this, and if so, any idea of how much they would charge? I have a '14 base model 2.5i, and that rear compartment is plenty dark at night! I'm thinking I'll just have to carry my LED head light and use it while loading/unloading at night!

Great write-up OP! How are these connected electronically - do they just turn on with DRLs, or is there a way to set them up on their own circuit?

Why don't you upgrade the bulb in the rear compartment? I ordered a 20 led circuit board that plugs into a dummy bulb that plugs in same as the oem bulb, but its way brighter. >$15 and >15 minutes of work.





OP come on man! where are the finished product shots! I'd love to see how it looks at night.

Random question.
Do you by chance remember, when pulling the A Pilar, if you noticed the sheet metal to the roof of the car?
I am planning on puting a light bar up top and want to drill a hole in the roof, below the sheet metal looking weather stripping, and run the wire down the A pilar.

Thanks
