    Hey guys, I've seen some mods on LEDs under the car and seats, but I was wondering if anyone had a simpler way to do this.. not crazy like Fast and Furious, but like a cool blue or something. I kind of want to stay away from the main battery and stuff. Any suggestions? Sites? Links? Mods? Mahalo in advance. Trying to work on my truck now!! Thanks to all!

    I put LED strips (16" ea) on the seat adjuster handles (front) and on the B pillar (rear). Here is what they look like on... Red truck=red interior lighting... (;-D

    I wired them into the dome circuit, found a post in here that called out the wire in the drivers side A pillar. I ran a single wire to the center console and powered all 4 strips from there.

    I can take some daytime pics to show where I put them...

    No drilling, I tapped into the circuit behind the drivers side A post handle (with 2A fuse)... Ran the wire down the pillar, along the door sill behind the front seat and across to the center console. From there I powered all 4 of the light strips.

    The light strips I used look like these:

    I bought them from PepBoys $22/pair.

    I'm doing some mood lighting with the LED strips I am selling soon. I have about 1 hour more of work to have it fully installed and I will take pictures. I just need to find that 1 hour in my day...

    Edit: mine will also be in red
