Easy. Cheap. Clean.

LED tape, couple connectors, run wires down middle of window under channel, wire to dash light switch. Done.

Less than $20 in parts with plenty extra for other projects.

Nice.

The interior of your truck is beautiful.

Thanks.

Here's a shot when off - hardly noticeable.

I wasn't expecting them to be that bright - comes in handy though. If only I could get the gauge lights a bit brighter

I like a red light...less stress on the eyes. When you're old it makes a difference!

They do have softer/different colors of LED strips - some come with remotes so you can change the color.

I initially bought the lights for a different project and new I would have extra for the truck. Still have more left over!

Crazy cheap - think the roll with remote and AC adapter (for inside cabinet project) was like $16 bucks.
