Footwell lighting

Has anyone done any footwell lighting both in front and rear of crew cab?
Ideas or direction??
Difficult to find something down there in the dark on black interior.

No I haven't but I am subscribing because i agree with you it is dark even without black interior. I know recon makes a lighted plate that replaces the stock plate at the bottom of the door/ rocker panel

I have put foot well lighting in every vehicle I have ever owned. My dad started puttin it in his rides as a teen and I just picked up (and slightly modernized) the trick.
We always used to use small clearance lights I used those a few times and then I have started using the LED light strips you can pick up at Advance auto or autozone (although Wal-Marx has em a lot cheaper)

They produce more light spread out better and flex to the contours under the dash. I have blue lights inside my truck (grey interior) right now. But I have put red inside a lot of vehicles. The blue is a lot brighter than the red but it isn't so bright it is hard to drive at night.

I have always wired mine up into the park light circuit so they turn on when I am using my headlights. Make sure you tap the right wire or you will end up like a friend of my dad, he put some in running them off the switch and tapped the wrong wire for power and when he turned on his high beam, his floor lights cut off? haha

WARNING! you will NEVER own another vehicle without them if you do it! I got home after buying my truck at 11pm (started the day around 7am) and as soon as I got home, I put the floor lights in. I could not stand driving it home without my lights. I'm just like that!

That is also an option. The way mine are wired, if the park lights are on, the floor boards are lit up. No need to flip the switch for the dome. Or, if you only want them on with that switch!

I have mentioned it to some people before and they thought it would affect driving at night, it does not make it hard to drive at night, for me it makes it better because you have a lil bit of ambient lighting inside the vehicle. I can post up a night shot if you want.
