El Cheap-o EZ interior lighting enhancement

The interior lighting in the Tacoma is truly underwhelming, especially in the glove box, console storage, finding something dropped on the floor, etc.

This 'enhancement' was virtually free. I took a freebie 9-led flashlight from Harbor Freight and wrapped it in a single layer of scrap 1/4" foam, then keep it in the overhead glasses pocket. It's always there when I need it, doesn't rattle, and will illuminate anywhere I point it. (I save the Maglite for longer-distance stuff)

You should look into getting the dome light and map light LEDs from csjumper. 25 bucks shipped. They are extremely bright. I love them.

I put my sunglasses up there though. Why not just keep a flashlight in the armrest? Not really a "mod"

I've got one of the small LED flashlights that's just plugs in to the cigarette lighter, always there, always charged.
