Nice cutoff!

Ok, I may have gone overboard on this one. I think I found the limit of brightness when measured on a scale of comfort.

I added double the LEDs to the two stock dome lights and the additional one in the cargo area. The two 48 SMT boards are just super glued together and the wires of one soldered to the other.

When compared to the lighting on the house, you can see just how bright the light is in the 80.

There is an extra courtesy light in the front door. Other than that, the only change was to add the LEDs. Keep in mind, you are looking through tinted glass in the rear windows. The cargo area is stupid bright now.
