    Is there a thread on how to install the map/dome LEDs? I did a search but didn't find anything. I ordered them and now I'm not sure how to put them in.

    Thanks! :D

    out with the old, in with the new :D simple as that

    edit: to clarify, there is a little slot on the dome light for you to stick a pocket knife or flat tip screw driver in. it's on the driver side and will swing down towards the PS

    for the map lights they swing from outside of truck towards the center.
    the left one goes from left to right and opposite for the passenger side one.

    I installed them. I gotta admit...I'm a little disappointed. They don't seem any brighter than the stockers just a different color. I was hoping they would be brighter. Oh well.

    Yeah mine were the same way.:eek: You should do the map/dome light mod so when you open the doors or hit the unlock button, all 3 lights come on at once. I did the mod and was pretty pleased with the results.;)

    I did the 42 LED board for my map light, it is 4x as bright! at night when it comes on my passengers say "let there be light"!
