Default Re: How To: Put L.E.D. strips in your cab

mine didnt, but you can wire them to do so. just tap into whatever wire runs to the dome light and triggers the light.

The switch you got must not be the right one and cant handle the amps.
You need a better switch

I like what you did, do you think this would work with normal led strips?
I couldnt find room on my '02 xlt to mount the leds on the driver side knee panel so i did the cupholder mod and ran a switch, looks nice. but i really want something to illuminate the floorboard, anybody do something different?

Thumbs up Re: How To: Put L.E.D. strips in your cab

Knocked this out today, wired em to the dimmer switch like the tutorial says. I'm undecided on that though, I may wire it to come on when the door opens.





Thanks for the great idea and tutorial.

Once I get an LED bulb for the dome and an LED OHC Light from buggman it'll look alot more clean with just pure white, non of that yellow light crap lol.

I was debating on doing blue cause my Alpine HU is blue but I think I'll like just pure white better for the LEDs.

I'm going to get some blue strips in soon just for show. I've got a blue cluster, blue HVAC, blue amp lighting, and my head unit is set to match, so some footwell lighting would be cool. Sometimes at night cruising I just feel like I want some in there lol.

buggman approves of this mod!



Old pic of mine.
I had them wired to come on with the original dome light, but now have them wired to my modded mustang dome light's map lights. Just flip the left switch & the left map & left footwell leds come on... flip the right switch & the left map light & left foot well leds come on
