Nice!! However, they look like they maybe too bright for my tastes. I like it real dark in the cab at night. I wish there was someway to turn my stereo (alpine CDA-9883) display right off...

I don't normally like the LED's in the cab, after installing them on my own truck and loathing them, but that is very clever! I have people searching for my door handle all the time at night, and the same for me in their vehicles.

What Exterior Mods do you have planned?
