Hey ya'll, this is my first post here as I just bought my truck 2 weeks ago. I drove a Jeep TJ before that... now it's been retired for off road/weekend use only. I tried searching for the answer to this but didn't find much since I don't really know how to phrase it.
I'm interested in adding some red lighting to my interior to be in addition the map/dome lights. My plan is to wire them to a switch so that when I go hunting in the morning I don't kill my night vision while gathering all my crap in the cab (kind of like how battle lights in a navy ship/sub work). I've seen people who replaced their map/dome lights with red LEDs, but I want to maintain a regular light option as well, since the red would be annoying to try and read a map or anything intricate.
I was thinking about buying an OEM switch and incorporating it into a blank on my panel. Also thought about the space between the map lights to mount 2 red LEDs (not sure what's behind there).
Looking for ideas on how to do this. Has anybody done anything similar? Where did you mount the lights? How did you wire it?
Thanks in advance.
