Looks good, hows the light coverage with the LEDs inside the cab at night? I was gonna do the exact same thing but wasnt sure if the lenses would spread the light right with the LEDs in there..

Its friggin bright lol, i would say its alot better than stock, worth the 5 bucks per bulb imo, I used the Natural White color, i also removed the reflectors from the map light so it would spread out more. And I didnt even get the largest bulb for the dome light, i got the 9 LED and they make a 12 LED on the superbrightled website, i cant imagine how bright that is lol

Great mods I'm just curious to ask why the green LEDs in the cupholders and not blue like the well lighting?

These had built in resistors and came from radio shack, the only color they had, it made alot less hassle with the little room I had to work with to get these in, I think I blends well, I didnt want too much of one color if that makes sense.

How did you get the covers off the front map lights? That's been sort of an on-going battle for me. I bought LED's for the map light like 3 months ago and still haven't installed them because I'm afraid I'm gonna snap the covers in half prying them off.

For the LEDs under 30 minutes total for dome / map light / license plate.

Covers for the map lights were simple. Get a firm grip of it in the middle, there 4 clips that hold it, just pull down slightly on each corner until it unpops, be firm with it. Once you get that far, theres the black piece connected to the tanish piece well in my truck anyways, separate the two by pushing out 2 tabs(that are closest to you), this will let you get to the bulbs. To get the piece completely out though, theres 2 hinge like pieces of plastic (closest to your rearview mirror) that slide out to let you work with it a little better. I removed the reflectors so I could put my LEDS in easier, I did not although put them back in. From there just repeat the steps backwards to reassemble, hope this helped

I wouldn't try this lol, took me im guessing 8 hours total for the cupholder lights? Just tons of sodering and drilling that you have to do to put em in, and not to mention getting out the cupholder wasnt easy at all, then putting it back in. I also wired in a switch to turn them on and off.
