i've had these lights in the center console of the JK for over 2 years now. i literally just last night installed ONE of them. :lmao:
here's the theory. 12v source. switch. mount the light since it's surface mount. i mounted the one for Lori on the down-facing angle towards her. it actually angles pretty decent toward the lap of the passenger and doesnt glare too much. works good.
for ease of install, i removed my soundbar. 6 bolts hold it in. 2 on the crossbar over the dvr/pas heads and 4 on the lateral bars. unplug the harness and it slips out. I mounted a standard (lit) switch by the speaker for depth reasons and also so Lori can reach back behind her head and flip it on.
here, the light is mounted and the power wire routed into the soundbar.
I basically just fished the wire in between the forward mount and the recess for the hardtop screws. drilled straight in, then angled the hole towards the gap so i could angle the wire.
here, the switch is mounted and wired. i ran the 12v source through the grommet on the soundbar and took the power from my HAM radio harness, then up the B-pilar. it's LED, the radio won't even notice it.
here, the finished product.
I got the lights at Super Bright LED
in general purpose lights.... accent lighting...
i have two sets of lights. i installed a pair of the ULITE models led lights under the dash to light up the front foot well. they do wonders. the light i installed on the soundbar is the ALM-x6 light.
the way their site is setup, i cant see a way to link directly to the product.
maybe two years from now, i'll get the one installed on my side.
its a decent little accessory. it certainly helps light up dark spots inside that the standard dome lights do not illuminate. i just wish i had gotten off my ass and done it sooner. if you get red-x's.. the pics are on facebook, so if your server wont allow facebook access, it'll show the red-x.
