I do have the CDL switch. I just haven't done the Pin7 mod. I'll bring my picks too, and maybe we can fool around with this a CM, Jeff.

Thanks, Nakman...I was referring to the bezel, but even that has never been taken off by me!!! I would love to make sure that I don't do something stupid to crack the bezel on my virgin voyage! I'm sure there are great directions on Mud, but how much fun is that?

If I didn't crack mine on either rig or Hulk's when we did his CDL, you won't crack yours - Literally just 8 screws...

Remove the tcase knob, shift the rig into neutral, remove the 4 screws on the shift console cover (2 on each side), lift it up a bit and disconnect the PWR/2ND buttons connector, lift off the console, pull out the ashtray, remove the 2 screws hiding behind it, remove the "pocket" (flat head screwdriver to gently pry down the locking tabs) and the 2 screws hiding behind it or alternately remove you OEM cupholder if you installed that.

Then gently pull on the console on the top center, bottom center, and then left side. You can't pull it out too far unless you start disconnecting stuff.

Now that I think about it, you probably don't even need to remove the shift console cover but I always do for more space to work or to run wires etc.

IIRC 15 mins or so start to finish...It usually takes longer to decide where you want to put the switch than to install it...Of course if you want to rearrange the switches this will add time. In my case I dropped the antenna up/down switch to the bottom row, shifted the top switches over to the right, and installed the CDL in the top row, far left. We could get 'er done in the parking lot before a meeting

Did both the 7-pin and the CDL today! Easy, except for trying to get the wires out of the transmission module...for some reason mine didn't want to come out!!! Yay!

This is one mod, probably the only mod, that I could be of use for. If anyone ever wants to do it, I'd certainly help.

Matt, can't believe you've never done it.

Tim, yeah, I can bet you've had that panel off a ton with all those LEDs. With my CB, LED mike holder, and the CDL switch, I'm getting good at it too.

As far as not getting the wire out, if you open the connector as the Slee writeup suggests, it should come out pretty easily.

Actually...I was able to get the wire pin out of the connector very easily thanks to Christo's directions. It was trying to pull the connector out of the module that gave me trouble. It's hard to get two hands up in there and the connector was sticking to the Trans module. The bezel came off way easier than I expected...a few screws and a slight pull and bam!
