    I designed some drop-in LED map lights for my own build and made a few extra sets in the process, so here they are for sale. I wanted a blacked out look to blend in with the overhead console.. and they do just that :D
    These take the place of the entire map lens/light. They snap into place and push on/off like stock.

    It is a 3D printed panel with SEM texture coat to give it an OEM'ish look. Diffused/ smoked LED with T10 connector soldered on so it plugs into the bulb insert.

    Are they the brightest EVER? No.
    Are they brighter than stock? Yes.

    I've had super bright map lights and Yes...there is such thing as TOO bright. These have a nice light dispersion and not too blinding.

    A few mods have been done. Some more may come.
    I saw them in another pic you posted. They look really nice. Any chance of red Led's in them? Or would it be hard to change them to red led's?

    Was planning to purchase LED bulbs for the map lights, dome light and mirror lights. Can you recommend bulbs that will match well for the mirrors and dome? Thanks, buddy

    Yes. It's a 3/4" hole that accepts standard "side marker lights" available in red,orange,yellow,white and smoked.
    In fact, I was thinking of doing 1 red(night ops super Oper8r) and one smoked.
    Ain't nothin to it but to Stew it.
    These are more in the ~6K range. I haven't changed the mirrors out(I don't think I've even opened the mirror ever)
    I'm working on a nice blacked out entire center dome light insert. I just hate the big ugly yellowish stock lens.

    A solution for the dome (and any thoughts on best way to find bulbs to closely match for mirrors) will be appreciated. :)
