    I just did an early hardtop dome light upgrade to LED light.

    The light insert is a new product from Odd Iron Off Road

    Link: Over view of Odd Iron Off Road and offerings for Land Cruisers and off road vehicles

    Very impressed at how well this was put together ... well thought out for sure

    Wasn't just one of those bulb replacements ... you have to remove to case holding screws to install ... but... pathetically easy to install

    This thing puts out some serious light

    Thanks Charles @1978HJ45

    very good product !

    :)

    And thanks for the sticker ... we like stickers

    Oh yeah. Pretty sure this will be my next part ordered, once I get the hardtop back on. Thanks for posting up, @JohnnyC.

    It would be interesting to know how many of the 1972 and prior 40 Series have working dome lights.

    I can now actually see the groceries in the 'way back' :)
