Anyone know how to take apart the stock cupholder
 
I have an 02 dodge and I want to put some surface mount LEDs in the cupholders anyone know how i can take them apart or off so i can get behind to drill a slit and get everything mounted before wiring.

That's a good question, and while I don't have an answer for you, I moved your thread over here and maybe you can get some ideas. I know a couple folks have done something similar, but good luck and be sure to post some pics of your install! :)
