First off it is designed and engineered in the USA which is always good. These are custom molded to the vehicle itself using the companys exclusive rubberized resin.

To do that you can see we have got two covered connectors on the inboard side. We just want to pry off the lid and that is going to reveal a Phillips head screw. With those two removed we can gently rock the tail light back and forth to release the outboard clips of the tail light. With the tail light removed you can see our connection port is located directly on the back side of the tail light. We just want to depress the button on the connector and that is going to allow us to separate the two pieces. For the time being we just set the tail light off to the side. 00:53

There are 2 weld nuts which we are going to use the existing end 12 fasteners that are going to go in to those points there. OK, then again on the outside of the frame rails here, you can see the 2 attaching points. There is a weld nut here and one above it as well, and that is going to be the same for both sides of the frame.
