Start with a clean work space. Below is the layout of the parts I started with, identified by number below.


To install the 2013+ LED tail lights, a jumper harness must be made to connect the 2009-2012 wiring to the 2013+ LED tail lights.
Before we start making the harness, it is important to note how the 2013+ LED tail lights function. Below is a diagram of the functions of each of the pins in the 2013+ tail lights:


If you sourced the LED pigtail from a junkyard, you will need to move one pin, and remove and discard another, as they are not all in the correct location for the 2013+ LED Tail Lights. Below is a picture of the contact that must be moved and removed and discarded.

To remove a pin:
1.) Remove rear cap with a pick or small flathead:

2.) Remove rubber insert:

3.) Lift up on blue connector retainer with a pick:

4.) Insert small flathead or allen key to release plastic pin retainer.

5.) Remove wire.

6.) Re-insert wire to correct location.
