Dome light LED bulb that actually works right.

As title says, Chris and I have tried 3 bulbs to no avail.

Anyone have experience with switching the Dome light bulb with an LED that lights up with proper brightness when doors open?

They pretty much all will ramp up to full brightness when you open the door. I've had all different kinds, and they increase brightness when they turn on.

Its not the truck, the LED bulbs require less wattage so it confuses the relay. It gives less juice hence why its dimmer.

Hey , thanks Steve..., honestly brother I couldn't tell you , get with csjumper2003 (Chris) & ask him what part # etc; he put in 4wd's/Doug's 1st gen & he can hook you up, I'm pretty new to the whole LED thing & its increased illumination but can honestly say that I'm stoked with them & chris is a good guy to deal with..

Well then I say lets roll to his pad ,tie him up & beat the shit out of him !!!!

j/k

Seriously though , guess I'm not seeing the big picture here, is it they are just dim from the time they energize or do they come on bright (normal) at first & slowly dim (like on a reastat) ??

what has happened with mine is that when the truck is off and the doors are open the led dome light is very dim. but when you turn the key to the auxiliary position (is that what its called when you turn it half way to turn the radio and lights on??) or if the truck is running the LED dome light is on nice and bright.

i have also tried lights from csjumper as well as others but they all so the same shit. do the map lights work? i never even tried those because of the dome light bs.
