    How to install REAR LED cup holder lights?

    I'll be visiting Concept 3 next Friday to get a bunch of stuff done, and this is on my list. However, they've never done this mod, and to help save us time, can someone explain how this is done?

    Thank you!

    I know there was a member that did this mod and posted pics as well, he said it was pretty easy but I just can't think of who that is. If I can find that thread I will post it here for you.

    Hey bro. I believe i am the only person so far that has this installed. I got the positive lead from the license plate lights and just found the nearest ground. The cup holder is not screwed in, you could use a removal tool to pop it out. I ran the wires along the side of the o the arm rest and out through the stitching.

    Thanks for your response!

    Was that supposed to be a link to a DIY? It doesn't take me anywhere.

    Frenzy that looks awesome. I think if i did this my kids would think that Im the coolest dad ever. LOL. Question though, if its hooked up to the license plate lights, does it only come on when you turn the headlights on or parking lights or am I just way off here.

    Hey Eric the parking lights and the license plate lights both come on at the same time. So whenever the parking lights come on the cup holders illuminate. For both front (center console & rear seat)
