    My previous truck had puddle lights and I really liked how they illuminated the side of the truck. I was searching for LED lights to install under the body of the truck then came across these flush mounted LED’s that were small enough to fit in the side mirror. They came out pretty good. I have them wired in to the rear cargo light so when you unlock the truck all sides of the truck gets illuminated. The lights were $8.99 for a pack of 5, and the 10ft of thin gauge wire used to thread through the side mirror and door harness was $4.99. Here is the link for the under hood light kit with hood pin switch: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B017SAA78O?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf

    That's pretty sweet, good job. Do you have links to the lights/other parts you used?

    That look great!!! What wire did you tap for the lights? Do they come on when you unlock the truck?

    I have a retractable cover on my bed so I installed the tundra cargo lights in the bed and tapped into the cargo light. The wiring for that is right under the driver side kick panel. The light comes on when you unclock the door, open the doors and you can manually turn them on by using the OEM cargo light switch. I followed this YouTube video for the wiring. It shows you exactly what wires to tap into.
