I have, but it isn't very bright. Would love to find a LED that is brighter. I ordered mine from RECON.

It should be a 921. The problem with most LEDs is that they don't have a wide angle beam. And since there's no reflector around it, you get much light.
UPCB series Universal PCB Lamp with Mating Bases
This is the best thing I've found.

An LED killing two huge batteries?
It turns off when the hood is closed anyway.

My hood light will automatically turn off after awhile. 20 or 30 min??


Do the 08+ trucks not do that?
