Default Map Light

I have a 2012 Ram Express Quad Cab and want to know if I can install a map light between the visors like the other trucks have ?

I don't see why not. Could always drop the headliner and see if it has the mounts you need.

If you can find a R/T model, see if there is a difference in cabs

I just did this to my express, you have to have the overhead console that has the bracket that goes underneath the headliner. It is held in place by the sunvisor screws. The wiring is in the pillar for the ground and overhead light, but you need a constant power supply also, so the map lights work without the door being open or being turned on by the switch. Just be carefull when you are cutting out the headliner....
