I just ordered lights from superbrightLED.com for the domes and maps. We'll see how they are. If not bright enough I'll spend the $45 for George Couyant's superbright map light LED's. I also ordered LED lights for my low voltage yard lighting. That could be cool!!

cool, I'll be interested to see what the map light does.. that's one I still haven't changed yet. Shark Baiter has the George map light, and it's way bright.. be cool to see the comparison.

I have all George's lights too -- had them since 2004. They are still way bright.

I love mine. If I bring Tim a 12-pack, maybe I can upgrade.

I figured I'd try them for the map light since two bulbs (one wide angle and one with four LED's) were only a total of $6. They should arrrive next week.

Now we need a night run. There are some seriously cool marker lights too. I can definitely see installing more as utility light. Has anyone run 12V to the liftgate?

I have been getting LED Crazy too, I am replacing the bulbs on my 40's interior with the led conversion bulbs, as well as, adding some good useful light!

We should have a night party sometime...

Add some multi-color blinking lights and you can join the rave the co4x4 guys are planning this weekend.
