not hard to fit. if you find a smooth boot already done then you can just swap it over otherwise it involves removing the wiper and boot lock and welding a plate over the holes then filling/sanding and repainting etc...

popper wise it just needs bolting to anything solid on the inside of the tailgate, connecting the actuator bit to the boot relese linkage and wiring it up to however you choose to activate it. ive got mine running from one of the accessory outputs on my alarm key fob

the welding / filling aint simple, takes alot of time to get right. fitting the popper kit is easy they come with instructions
