Ya he had a lot of problems getting his grill off too. Mine pulled right offTwo notes on the Lonestar Hawaiian video. I watched that video before installing 2 RC light kits. There is an alternative for the cable routing going through the firewall. Not to be critical but his rout seemed more complicated and did not make sense to me. I posted pics and an explanation of how to go through the firewall last week in the What did you do to your Trail Boss thread.
Also, he pulls a ground wire to disable a tiny LED on the switch.. That LED is not going to influence your battery. The on/off LEDs are there to protect your battery. His lights are wired hot, they are not disabled by the ignition system. During daylight if you inadvertantly bump that switch and leave your truck the lights will suck your battery dry. I like being able to see from the cab what is going on and I like things grounded. YMMV.
