I just replaced the vanity and rear cargo lights with Diode Dynamics blue LED's.

I like the blue better than the factory white or red. Next is to replace the red LED's in the center console, doors, and front left and right side front foot wells.
I will have to make a custom board as these LED's are on circuit boards. I will do the front foot wells first as they are easier to replace.

That's pretty slick looking. I'm definitely interested in hearing how the modification goes. Keep us posted.

Good work!

Were these LED's a direct swap? Or did you have to add resistors / change the current level somehow?

All the Blue LED's that I installed were direct swap and only took a few minutes total.
I am working on replacing the red led circuit boards in the front foot wells. After that the doors and console because that takes more time to remove stuff.

you can solder in a 8 lt led strip into existing footlwell assembly and also illuminated sill plates for both front and rear doors with no issues

These are with the new upgraded blue LED"S. I like this much better than red.

I will have a direct replacement for the stock ready to ship in January if anyone is interested. Next is the door panels and the console.

Depending on how difficult switching out the door panel and center counsel are, I'm in!

Has anyone switched out the stock map/dome LEDs? They are a warm color, I am looking for whiter light.

I replaced the two rear hatch area 168/194 bulbs with these. They are bright, and white.:cool:
