Prime said the first mod he did was put in LED dome lights so I was taking a look around and I found interior lighting "kit" here:


Other than the license plate lights is that really all the light fixtures inside (with a bulb)? 2x dome lights, 2x map lights and 1x trunk light? They sure have a lot of colors to pick from and I'm guessing I want white since it's good lighting that I want. Even then there are three different "whites" i.e. Pure, Warm and Cool. Any feedback on which color would provide the best lighting would be most welcome. Also if there are other lights in the cabin which were not listed I sure would like to know.

Thank you!

I’m not sure what they mean by “trunk light.” There are only the four bulbs on the interior (2 map, 2 dome). The color of white is subjective. I did cool white and am happy with it. You can save a lot of money though getting them through this guy. He only offers cool white or red. He doesn’t post there anymore for the same reason many of us don’t but he’s still sending out lights. They arrive fast.

6k white all the things.

Check out vleds.com

That's where I buy all my bulbs and they've been great.
Roger that I'll check it out. So how about the count? 2 map bulbs and 2 dome bulbs and that's it? Is there also a "trunk" bulb like some of these sites sell as part of the lighting kit? I'm looking around to answer my own question but I'd feel a lot better about it if the wiring master provides some clarity. Thank you!

Well mine is getting a service so I can't look but it seems the manual says you should have one of two styles of overhead/dome lights (1 or 2 bulb?) AND two map lights (1 bulb each) AND a cargo light (1 or 2 bulb?)

Gads..... The map lights up front have 1 bulb on each side. The Middle dome light has ONE (1) bulb. The rear cargo/trunk/"whatever you want to call it light" has 1 bulb.

Nice, I should do this...how about a source for the incredibly dim dash lights?
I used these they work great. Nice and bright and work with the dimmer.

The 1st Gen and 2nd Gen use very different lighting. Those won't work. The 2nd Gen has soldered surface mount LEDs that need to be tediously replaced one by one.
I'm glad you said that before I wasted any money. Thank you. :)

The climate control is 16 if I remember correctly. The cluster is 28? I think?

All size 1206
THAT is a lot of LEDs. There are a few kids across the way that go to Universal Technical Institute and maybe they'd do the work for me on the cheap. Thank you again sir. Now I gotta update my sig to 5 solutions for you. If you keep helping me like this I'm going to be modding my signature a lot. Thanks again!
