I am going to swap trunks with someone, how hard is it to do? What needs to be done to get it off?
I'm meeting him at the NC line, but I was more or less wondering what kind of job I was looking at. Some things look easy then become a pita. For example Hoen lights, getting the wires connected without much slack from the stock wires is a pita.jamesbiz said:lol oh . you're getting that red trunk huh. it's not really that hard to do. i'm sure he'll do it all for you seeing how if i remember right he wanted you to come to his place and swtich off right?
Yea, realdeal's is an 05, and mine's 06. So basically rip the carpet off the trunk to find these connections. Or where are the connections.MotorheadMike said:I've done it. There are pretty much five things that need to be done:
1) Remove the trunk lid liner by popping out the plastic retainers.
2) Disconnect the spoiler brake light wiring by disconnecting the plug.
3) Disconnect the wiring from the trunk release by disconnecting the plug.
4) Disconnect the manual trunk release cable from the trunk release by removing the bolt from the cable bracket and unhooking cable from release.
5) Remove the four bolts connecting the trunk to the trunk hinges.
You will need two people to remove the trunk. I would suggest taping the edges of the lid and trunk to avoid chipping the paint. Also, use something (I used a white crayon) to mark the outline of the hinge arms onto the trunk lid to aid in lining it back up. This will get you close, but you may still have to do some adjusting.
One other thing: when I swapped tunks on an '04, the trunk releases were two different designs and had different electrical connections. You might have to swap releases if you run into this.
I'm going from memory here, but I don't think I left anything out. Hope this helps.
The connections are in the trunk lid under the carpet. You will find them easily with the trunk carpet off.00blackss said:Yea, realdeal's is an 05, and mine's 06. So basically rip the carpet off the trunk to find these connections. Or where are the connections.

Yea man when the guy tried to run me off the road i was on 295, I locked up the brakes, missed him. Then I just pounded the gas, I took it up to 140, cause I figured this guy wasn't good to be around.RealDeal said:Went nice and smooth! I was on my way back when some Explorer with a trailer and some crap on the back started dropping rocks off at every bump. I think I passed him/her at about 120 and luckily evaded the rocks.
Good to meet you again SS!
