Tuffy has one for their products that should work.

Doug, for what it's worth I ordered (2) of the MUD UK ones. The 1st lasted about a week before it was totally dead (not the battery). The 2nd lasted about a month. If it were me, and this is ultimately what I plan to do, I'm going to hardwire a low-price LED light right in the damn Tuffy and run it to my Blue Sea fuse box.

I just wired in a rear interior LED flood on the NAS cage, and think it's the greatest thing ever (this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1). I plan to just drill a hole/grommet in the Tuff and run power in there for the same thing that the crappy MUD UK one should have done, and just switch power it.

I bought an LED Live Well light from Amazon and just wired it to the dash light circuit so it is on with the headlights. It draws almost nothing and lights up the cubby box nicely.

Great idea considering factory radio harness in the cubby has a hot wire when the lights are on. Please post a pic.

Wire in a door switch. One from a RRC or disco. It can go on a bent metal bracket. That's my plan when the time comes.

wanted one for the Engel fridge so the cheapy Doug posted may work for that but still want something that isn't hardwired for Treys rig. I'll look into the Tuffy

I just checked the Tuffy one. It's battery powered, so no wiring. Dunno if that's good or bad.

Batteries are so 2005. Hardwire LED is where it's at.

Something like this could be stuck to the inside of the cubby and would come on automatically. A similar unit was the standard kit for liberty safe illumination.

I have a Baja Designs LED dome light in my truck as a dome light. I love it and it works very well. Placed on the cubby lid it would light up the cab also.

I think this is the one I bought as I recall. I don't have a picture of it working because the truck is in pieces right now, but I installed in in my Tuffy Box and tested it and it works great!

I'd have to take another look at my tuffy box to see if there is a suitable place for it, but if you can fit one of the door switches under the lid, you could wire it to that as well. If you do that, I recommend ordering the one for an e30 3 series BMW, it is the same switch but is covered in a nice black rubber boot and costs less than the naked one from LR.

It was part of a larger Blue Sea fuse box project so I could wire up my rear led worklight, this interior led flood, hot rear 12v mounted in the speaker housing to plug in my fridge, 2 hot USB ports up front to plug iPhone/etc in, hardwire connection for Garmin, and a few other goodies. It came out pretty damn good...

hard wiring is out since we will be converting the truck to a 4.0 gems/automatic setup soon.

It would be wasted time energy effort

I'm using the Hella marine 3606 series strip LED's (10 LED's) on the back of the cubby box (operated on a switch beside the radio). you can place this inside the cubby box as well (it will fit) and operate off of the switch or on the light circuit wire in the look (at least for the 95' NAS it is Red/black dots)

I am planning to use 2 of these as as map lights in the headliner plastic between the sun visors.
