Poor interior cabin lighting - especially the front courtesy lights

    Anyone know of a fix for the weak interior courtesy lights? They are so weak that they don’t even light up the front of the console area. I have to use my iPhone light so see anything there. Brighter bulbs? Or some other fix?

    Another weird gen3 quirk (interior and exterior lighting for when it's dark out), dunno why no center domelight - for those with no sunroof and they put those on the rearseats, so they don't help anything in the middle of the cabin

    Vled footwell light strips (they link ~ daisy chain) or pod lights (will need Y splitters to link)

    can use them for almost any application tapped into map / cargo light

    can also use dim module for night applications

    I find the interior lighting to be adequate, mines an SR5 premium, are there different options or levels of lighting that come with trim packages?
