    Okay I don't know about ya'll but I was pissed when I bout my taco in 08 and it didn't have a cargo light. Chevy's been putting cargo lights in trucks since the early 90's. Anyway I was wondering what you guys think of putting these:

    http://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-...ategory=BARS&Page2Disp=/specs/WLF-xW30SMD.htm

    On either side of the bed directly under the accessory rail. I figure they will draw less power so they could be run longer with the truck off, and they are waterproof so no worries about getting them wet. Plus they would be alot sleeker than big lights stuck in bed pockets. Just wondering what ya'll think? Is anybody already running a setup like this? If so I'd be interested in some pics.
    Lastly is there a Toyota cargo light switch (maybe for a tundra or something) that could be installed in a blank?

    Thanks for the input guys.

    they seem kinda high. $30 something for the 24" bar...
    and you would want two of those, one fore either side. If cost is not an option then go for it.

    I used one small fog light from walmart, the pair was only 15 bucks. so I used the other one under my rear bumper for a reverse light...

    even after putting one little light in the bed pocket I still had room to put a few tie downs in the same pocket

    Good point about price, I hadn't even looked at that yet. My dad just showed me these this morning. I would probably only do 1 on the back of my toolbox. That should be enough light.

    2 white ones installed facing toward the cab where the tailgate latches. Very easy to do and provides plenty of light. The tonneau may help the light bounce around in there, can't say for certain.

    I like that set up under the tonneau. How'd you power/switch those?
