    Well I wanted some light in the back of my bestop and came across these cheap led lights at Wal-mart for only 10 bucks. So I bought them, made some changes so that they would work best in my bestop. Here is how they came from the store and what you will need to do this cheap mod if you'd like. I know there is some really nice mods done with led's but if you want a cheap alternative this is it.

    Took off the cheap brackets they came with and grinded them down till they were smooth.

    Then I cut to size and applied industrial type velcro.

    I then applied it to my bestop. You can mount wherever you would like.

    And here they are applied and lighted up. These do light up really well at night! Hope you guys like this cheap and easy mod.

    Thanks, I was beginning to think that no one had seen this.
