COOL! I am doing the same mod on Tuesday when the bulbs come in! I am pretty sure installation is a snap. You should be able to removethe carpet mat surround on each side just inside the brake light housing. Then you will see the wires going in to the housing. Just turn it and it will pop out and you can replace the bulb. This is how most cars are made but I'm not 100% sure this is how it is on the Alty.

yea i got up to the carpet part...but the problem is that there are two hooks on each side that hold the cargo net...now to get those two hooks out...there has to be some special tool or a trick to do that...but thats how far i got...once the carpet is off...i think then you have to take out the tailight and then you can change the bulb...if anyone knows a trick would help much...

yea, i changed mine to blue. nice cheap mod. nice chop mark! i like the torque 5 in gunmetal like shortee.
Yeppers..This is a cheap mod and looks sweet when in reverse.

Thanks..I am trying to get a feel for these rims. I have someone local that is wanting my rims really bad, so I thought I would give it some thought. I have not decided which color, gunmetal or silver.

Not sure if the '05 is the same. We have plastic thingys on ours, but they pop off and then you can see the bolts.

i would definitely go gunmetal w/ silver. with the new bumper, that would look damn good! planning on getting this bumper and gunmetal or black rims by the end of next summer. gotta pay for college!

OK...I'm a moron! I didn't realize that the plastic pop-in effectively has a 'head' that you pop out first with the flathead....I struggled getting them out, and couldnt get it back in until I realized what was up. They look great now! Peeps point now at night when leaving video store!
