What did you search for when you found this. I have tried several different searches and have not come across it. Thanks

"billet led dome" works on ebay, look for the radius mount type. I used this for the front:

and two of these for the rear:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=221178464703

The back is controlled by the rear passengers via a switch on the back of a tuffy console and the front is controlled by a dash mounted switch. Or I should say will be LOL still getting it all together. The leds mount in some brackets welded to the cage, kind of dual purpose gussets and led holders.

The leds are fairly bright compared to a regular dome light and vibration a water proof.

Put them in today but did not get them wired. The larger light has three leds inside and the smaller two are single leds.

Wired the back two to one switch. The main "hot spot" is right on the fender well, were you would put a map or directions. The rest of the rear has a nice led glow. Perfect.

For mine, I got a rear view mirror from the junkyard with maplights built in. not sure what it came out of, but its pretty bright, and lights up the whole front cab area.

I opted for a book lamp with a clip and attached it to my visor.....

I used one the GM retractable lights (thanks for the idea Keith) connected to 12v power at my amp. It has a 25' reach with a magnetic end, so I can use anywhere inside or out of the Jeep.
