    I had some time on my hands and wanted to make a light for my bed, but I wanted to keep the clean look I have going so I mounted it inside the cab.

    Started with a cluster led for the dome lite. It didn't match the map lights
    so it was laying around waiting.

    Used some CF scraps.

    I cut out some of the tint so it can do its job better. Pretty bright considering its size. lights up most of the bed. happy with results. :D

    sub'd. hmm would it be possible to just install it up on the head liner, and tuck that bracket up there for a cleaner/OEM-ish look?? and angle the LED cluster so it points down at the bed.

    still pretty cool idea though. now another choice of bed light mod. I was thinking of doing the LED strip like everyone else, but this seems a lot more simple. you should do a write up man.
