Icon10 Toolbox and Under Hood Lights!!! PICS!

So I did some playing around... Since I'm a LED *****, I did a few things...

I bought the lights on ebay for like $15 a pair shipped and I bought 2 of them...

Here's the toolbox lights when I got them with the original LEDs (switch is on a push button right inside the box):

And here's with the 55,000mcd LEDs I bought and replaced the originals with:

Now for the under hood lights, I didn't put them in until I had the 55,000mcd LEDs in the housing to save time... So I did that the other night and then this morning put everything in... You can see the red switch right in front of the batter:

And just the the heck of it... This is what they look like out of the package:

Hey thanks guys, for all the compliments! It was literally a hour mod lol...

Anyways, here's the link... There's 2 different kinds from the same place..

Here's the ones I bought

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...=its%3DS%252BI

And here's the bigger brother to those ones... Wish I would have seen these when I originally bought mine... They were hard to track down as it was!!

the ones under the hood turned out real well! My factory under hood light doesn't light up nearly that much at all compared to your setup

They look really nice on the tool box set up debating whether or not I want to order some. I have a gullwing tool box so it may be worth it. Other wise once I put my cover on behind the toolbox a way to light up the bed a little bit with the cover on.
