Default 2013 DBALL RSR hard wired kit installed

I have seen posts about the DBALL from Xpresskit doesn't have a T-harness available yet 2013 models. I talked to the ebay seller doug43235 about when it would be available. He said he was told maybe later this year in like in Dec but there is a hard wire kit. So I ordered it. It was about $125 with shipping. He said the kit is higher because you have to have XKLoader2 to flash the firmware and access the Key2Go to write your fob to the module and he gives you a temporary login for Xpresskit's site to do your flashing. I have completed the install and it wasn't very hard at all. Total only ten connections that have to be made and only one wire that has to be cut at the ignition switch. Everything can be connected with wire taps except the cut wire. I did get stumped on the programming. After two days of trying to figure out what I was doing wrong and doug43235 emailing me with ideas to try. I realized while watching a DBALL install on youtube that when programming my fob to the module, I would put my key in, turn it on, and when I turned it off and pulled the key out I wasn't pressing the LOCK BUTTON. I felt so stupid at this point but so happy when the truck fired up. Now the wife wants to know when I'm putting a kit in her Trailblazer.

Some videos of my truck. I have pics of the wiring under the dash but haven't uploaded them to my photobucket account yet.
