    Hmm, I guess it could be called vanity light behind the sun visor on the 2012...

    Lol, yeah it's hard to fix the ugly looking back at me in my mirror on my side of the truck but I thought it might be nice for my bride to have improved lighting on her side if possible :rolleyes:.

    I have and it wasn't necessary, but after upgrading all interior lights to LED I wanted my visors to match. I found an LED fuse light off Amazon, it was like 8 bucks or something like that.

    It sounds like it didn't make much of a difference with the LED change, was the LED just to dim?

    No I have a little OCD, and I was wanting to match the rest of my LED interior. They actually made quite the difference in light output. Much brighter (IMHO).

    Nice and bright, if you don't mind that led color. Might be difficult to have onif driving at night, although you shouldn't be doing that anyway.
