trick hidden LED bed light

I had some time on my hands and wanted to make a light for my bed, but I wanted to keep the clean look I have going so I mounted it inside the cab.



Started with a cluster led for the dome lite. It didn't match the map lights
so it was laying around waiting.


Used some CF scraps.


Finished box



All made



I cut out some of the tint so it can do its job better. Pretty bright considering its size. lights up most of the bed. happy with results.

sub'd. hmm would it be possible to just install it up on the head liner, and tuck that bracket up there for a cleaner/OEM-ish look?? and angle the LED cluster so it points down at the bed.

still pretty cool idea though. now another choice of bed light mod. I was thinking of doing the LED strip like everyone else, but this seems a lot more simple. you should do a write up man.
