Product Analysis
Curt did a decent job with this product, it looks OEM and fits without any difficulty. I don't know if the instructions were any good, I didn't need them!

Installation Analysis
Installation was as simple as crawling under the truck, unclipping the connector at the back of the 7-pin bumper plug, and plugging the Curt T-Connector in. Curt includes some zip-ties to tie everything down, and that was appreciated since the 4-wire pigtail is massively long. Instructions were, like I said, not really needed. Installation took 5 minutes.

Overall Opinion
On my old Colorado, I'd spliced in a 4-flat connector manually. It looked hacked together, and I was always worried that water might get into the connections and short it out. To make it worse, somehow I managed to hook it up so that the turn signals reversed when the brakes were applied (only when LEDs were in the tail lights). This unit doesn't have that problem, and looks almost OEM. The connections are all tight and as water-resistant as the original ones. It's a little more money than buying a 4-flat connector and some t-taps, but not by much.
