    Are you sure there's no light under the driver's side footwell? That's what I thought about my '16 until I found it not under the footwell but where my left knee goes when driving the truck.

    Oh my.....that's a light?!? LOL Had to wait till night to find it. But you're right...there's this tiny little thing that seems to have a sole purpose of lighting the parking brake pedal. All righty, I can fix that!!

    Are y'all pig tailing all four sets thru the small drivers foot well light? ( driver, front pax and the two back seats). My wife's 15 1794 does not have a front pax foot well light.

    Yes, my 2015 doesn't have a front passenger side foot well light either. Also, you can run front and rear lights off the driver side foot well light wiring. The led's do not pull much juice at all.

    Yes, you would think that on the 1794 trim level, you would have foot well lighting all the way around.

    I'm thinking of putting a light in the center console as well. Would like it to turn on when opened. I'll have to think about what type of switch to employ.

    I'm thinking the same thing for my truck. I'm considering either a push switch or a mercury switch for mine. Also interested in how the puddle lights might make a great console and/or glove box light....
