I want to add some interior lights to the roll cage I've been building and was wondering if any of y'all have any suggestions?

Some things I'd like to see:

  • LED
  • Waterproof
  • White light (not blue)
  • 12V obviously
  • Small
  • Not stick on but maybe a screw on application

these work great. I have been using them in my duck boats for years. I have them as interior lights in my 84 cj7 and I have a red one as a third brake light on the same. Meet all your criteria other than stick-on. They stick very well though. Installed over 30 of them over the years. Never seen one fail yet even with saltwater exposure. I'm not affiliated but I will buy more.

Jake, post up what you did at the national with a link to that joint (that I'm incapable of finding now that I forgot the URL you told me: banghead:)

This is what they look like but, REAL IMPORTANT: I think he's out of the 5K which is what I used. The 6K are blue in color. I wanted white light - not blue.
If you want some, call they guy - 1-360-543-5700

I think he's out of what I've got and probably needs to re-order.
I'll try to take an after dark shot of what they look like in the Jeep so y'all can see.
So far, I'm extremely impressed!
Only think I should mention is that the wires going in to the unit are pretty delicate and I'd make sure you have the wire secured very close to the units so they don't pull out.
I screwed one up in the install. Otherwise - great lights for what I needed.

EDIT: I e-mailed the company and replacements are in the mail - no charge. I'm to return damaged one(s) in same package - shipping is on them. Good customer support.

I also ordered some of these but have yet to wire them in and install them.

This site gets a lot of usually positive talk/reviews.

Search "Dome Light" and see what tickles your fancy... :)
I'm leaning towards going LED inside a lot of my stuff too. The XJs are bad but finding anything in the back of the Scrambler is impossible!

I just ordered 5 of these LED strips from Toller's but have not yet had a chance to install them in my Jeep. I am going to use two strips under the dash and one each on the front and rear roll cage crossovers as dome lights (the 5th one is going in my Rhino). I'll post up pics once I get them in.

I think you will be pleased. Post up and let us know. I've installed a few since the post. I'm a former car stereo installer and do all my buddies jeeps, trucks, tractors and boats.

Looks good and bright. Don't blind the little one at night!

I have been thinking of how to add some sight for mine. This is a great thread. Thanks.

I've seen Jakes set up in person & they light the interior well. When the wife & I got back 2 the hotel and was tryin 2 find stuff in the center console in the dark, we tried 2 figure out where 2 put some of those & other variations.

Tim, what was the brand name for those solder butt-splice connectors you were telling me about and who sells them? Link maybe? Thanks.
