LEDs in bed

I posted this in the 6.7 section by mistake. Sorry!









I bought the "cool" white 600 led off of Ebay. They were 23 or 24 dollars with free shipping. They have 3M backing , but its not holding the best on my bed liner. Tomorrow I will get some body molding double sided tape. I used a small "project" box from Radio Shack and mounted it on the side of the bed directly behind the tail light.

Soldering the LED strip once you cut it is very difficult. It's just so small. (My opinion) So be patient.

pretty cool, I dig it. Did you install a switch or button in the bed to turn them off and on?

I've thought about doing this and installing a switch to turn them on when you open the tailgate.

This is awesome! I'm so sick of using my phone for a flashlight to make sure I got everything out. Putting a switch on the tailgate would be awesome or even a rocker switch hidden out of the way inside so that you don't always have to open the gate to turn the lights on would be cool as well.

I'd have to open the gate because I have a tonneau on.

I have a tonneau cover on too just like the op's. It's a big solid fiberglass one. I just have to open it and reach in from the sides usually.

Yeah, mine is a soft tonneau and have to have gate open to lift cover.
