Has anyone added a feature like this to cabs without this option? I would think adding lamps under the dash would be possible.
if this has already been addressed, I apologize...
Not sure on the later models on how they are wired up, but what I did in my '03, was hook a wire from the dome light, to the map lights to get better light in there. These Dbl cabs just don't get much light from the wimpy dome lamp alone. Only one problem doing this. I modded the map lights to where both switches are on all the time because I wanted both the map & dome to come on at the same time, so I attached a wire from the door switch (& another wire to ground) then to a toggle switch by where the cup holders are. So now I just flip the switch when I want light. Before I put in this switch, I had to open up the door to light up all three lights.
