Fender Vent Lights

I am just trying to get ideas for lights in my vents on my 08 king ranch. I put some led strips in there and they are just not bright enough. Wondering what you guys got? Post up pictures and what kind of lights you used. Thanks guys!

Don't have anything in mine yet but I know there are some pretty bright options out there. I just put some LED strip lighting in my bed and it's pretty bright.

I put one of these each behind a few weeks ago
LED Strip Lights, Accent Lighting & LED Modules - Super Bright LEDs
About 2/3rds down.......LUXART® LED Light Modules

I wired them in with the fog lights, they are pretty ****ing bright!

Ive had the laying around for a few years, left over when I did interior of car with led's.

I used the white since I actually wanted light in the bed and didn't just do it for aesthetic purposes. I'll grab some pictures tomorrow. Was a nice clean setup. I added a switch by the tailgate to turn them on.

I did this just using one 2" x 4" sealed 3 way truck light per side. Found them at the local truck stop. These are not the led ones either so they are not as bright.
