    Bought everything from superbrightleds.com and its very cheap.
    I bought a 9-LED Red Dome Light and 2 4-LED Cool White Map Lights
    Also bought 2 leds for the license plate but havent taken pics yet
    Only downside is they are very very dim unless the key is turned in the ignition. If anyone knows how to fix this let me know
    Here are some pics :D

    i got the wled-xhp for map lights, in white, 3710-xhp3 for dome light, in white, 3 wled-xhp 5 red for the high mount stop light, 2 wled 5 for license plate,white , and 2 wled-xlx for back up lights, didnt work out well, so im looking for something else, maybe other bulbs they have would throw enough light out, but i love them, worx good with the dim effect, and a ton more bright than the originals, the high mount stop light one you sometimes have to reverse them so they will work, cuz they are polarized, and if you are going to put them behind a lens, be sure to, if possible, get the same color bulb as that lens, the same color light is filtered less by the lens if they are the same color, making them brighter, its all on their website, my total order was around 72 bucks, shipped to cali and came in less than three days.

    Also be sure to measure the opening for fitment if you are going to add some lights, most of these have the same base, but different applications and sizes, there are drawings on most of their lights they sell
