Default Maps Lights Anyone?

I have read a bunch of posts about adding overhead lighting and the cost.

If you are like me with a 2012 Express without map lights ( really dark in truck )

I was looking for a simple solution to the lighting issue and found it

GM makes a rear view mirror with map lights and a guy sells on ebay for $20 + $8 for shipping!

The mirror fits perfect and is almost the same size as the Ram mirror

I just ran the wires to the fuse box and ground and now i have map lights !

There is even a spot that is removed from the headliner for the wire!!!

Great deal!

I wanted the map lights and a compass for my Express so I just got a CIPA 36600 that also has auto-dimming. It cost a bit more ($130).
