Default Lighted cupholder in 1500 SLT - anyone try it?

Have a 12' 1500 SLT with black interior and at night I can't tell the cup-holder (which is always open with a cup of coffee in it) from the rest of the dash.

As I said, it's ALWAYS open with a cup of something, coins and my phone in one of the 3 holes. I wouldn't think it would be too hard to mount some small light of some sort to the back edge of the holder itself or tucked back up in the space it pulls down from in the dash.

I'm guessing it could be wired to something like the power outlet that's only on when the key is on. But I know just enough about wiring to be very dangerous with it.

Thanks for any suggestions - that are physically possible.

You can put one of these LED's in the cup holder. One Led per cup holder. Drill one hole (side of cup holder) in each cup holder
for the wire and connect each one to a switched power source. IE cigarette lighter plug wiring.
