    today i installed some really tiny but very bright leds from oznium.com in the door handles of my truck that come on with my other lights when i unlock the truck or have the doors open. will try to get pictures later. thoughts or opinions anyone? pics do not do the lights justice. lights up entire door handle and the ground beside the truck from in front of the door to halfway the bed

    actually not hard a little time consuming but not difficult. i have red courtesy lights on my door panels they are wired in with. the leds i used have a ribbon wire that is really then and all i had to do was attach the led no mods other than tapping power. just have to run the wires all the way down the door then come over the bottom and up otherwise get caught in the power window and the feed
