I'm going camping this weekend, and might just have to take the supplies for this and do it while I'm there. This is awesome!

This is definitely going on my list of things to do!

It's already been said but that is brilliant (pun intended). This is definitely the next cheap mod for my Dub-Jay.

I stopped at my local Home Depot to find a set but was unable to find them. Did you have a part # or brand name?

You are correct, they are either Hunter brand or Hampton bay and $35 is exactly what i paid for them... problem is i couldn't find them at my local Home Depot anymore and to top that i have absolutely scoured the internet with no luck.

I have no objections to doing a write up, how do I start?

Parts list, step by step, tips and tricks, things to watch out for?

If you can't find the same dome lights, I saw some at oznium.com yesterday that could be used for the same thing. Someone used there superflux led lights and it lit up the rear cargo area very well. They also had a jeep that used them for rock lights for night wheeling. I would findthe specific link but it's kind of hard to do on my itouch.

i found a cheaper solution, that should be just as bright if not brighter, i'm going to do a write up tomorrow on it when i do it. Just to tease ya'll, total cost of lighting, wires, nuts, connectors, wire, and and a fancy $6 switch (haha) 22 bucks. and it's gonna look super clean, maybe even factory! doubt me? check back tomorrow.

ps. all parts are 100% brand new, i had nothing laying around.
