Sweet! They look awesome, and I'm glad it's going to work. Please completely document the process for those of us that may follow in your wake!

If some of the fittings don't line up, does it still have a strong and flush mounting position?

Also for anyone looking, these panels appear to be available from Quadratec.

Unsure of what other parts may also be required.

How do the pop-in trim clips line up with the 07 door shell?

With the 07 panel removed, the 11 panel fits in flush with no cutting to the 07 shell?

Some of the pop in trim tabs align perfectly. Others do not. Two of the trim tab bases on the top of the panel need to be removed (there are two more at the top than what is on the '07 panels). As for the door shell- the back end of the arm rest creates a slight bulge in the panel that needs to be addresses. Not sure if it will be completely remedied by trimming the back of the panel or if it will required a slight modification to the door shell. Either will be minor.

OK, good to know. Take lots of pictures and keep us posted!

I was thinking about borrowing my friend's '12 doors and try plugging them in just to see if the wiring is the same and if the door locks and windows function. Not sure if any changes were made to the wiring harnesses.

Can you take a picture of the panel near the window? Wondering if it's thicker or more curved than the 07-10's.
