4th gen LED interior

Recently bought a used 2005 4Runner that had the OEM incandescent lightbulbs.
Thought it would be a good start for my first mod to change them to LEDs.
Ou boy was I not ready for how bright they are in comparison.

[type 194]
Used in: 2x map lights, 4x door lights, 4x side step lights (1x license plate?)
Box of 10, 3014 chip-set for CA$21: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B071LHP5WP

[type D3145]
Used in: 2x dome, 1x trunk (1x left unused)
Box of 4, 3030 chip-set, CA$20: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B074M5Z9YX

All pictures were taken with the same camera settings (1/3, f3.5, ISO 3200).

[map lights]


[door lights]


[side step lights]


[dome lights]


[trunk lights]

I used different bulbs than you, but it makes an incredible difference. The stock lighting is soooo bad.

I just got my 4th gen too. Was it easy to replace all of the lights? I'm guessing its plug and play, just a couple of screws on each one.

I did the LED update as well, but recommend using red leds for the maplights.

The first time your SO or date hits the switch going down the road your nightvision is gonzo....

From first hand experience, red makes it so much easier on your vision. Unless youíre trying to actually find or read anything then it sucks.

It would be great to somehow have a "red mode/white mode" switch!

Totally doable, or put red on the passenger side and white on the drivers. The bright leds are going to flood the space anyhow.

I swapped mine out for the LED several years ago. When in very dark conditions its worth the pennies.

It wasn't actually all that easy. Had to search for videos of others installing them. I mean the light bulbs themselves are easy to take and and replace, taking the trim off is tricky.

I see your point, might just try it out if I ever get a hand of a red LED.

Still havenít gotten around to this yet, but definitely want to do it, but in addition would also like to run the wires to do the map light mod so the front illuminates with the doors being opened. I wonder who thought it was a great idea to illuminate that feature!?
