So i was so quick to get some LEDs for my dome lights i kinda forgot to do my research. It takes five bulbs for my interior, i ordered 6 off ebay since they came as set of twos. Not thinking the four front dome light bulbs would be diff. from the cargo area bulb. man was i wrong. but i didnt feel like waiting for ever for new leds to come from asia again. Sooo this is what i did....

First was just looking at the LEDs and pondering here is what i started with..

Did a little fiddling around and connected the wires from the LEDS to where the bulbs where suppose to be...

Hahaha, yeah, I got in on this mod too last night! Mine took a little less work, but yours took ingenuity, and you 'made lemonade' as it were.:thumbsup:
