Installed George's new LED modules in the dome and cargo lights. I had his earlier module in my 80, loved the output and low power draw. The new ones in the 100 are awesome - so much brighter than the dim, yellow standard bulbs.

Buy them here:

George is a great guy and has done some great innovations for Cruisers.

LED vs. standard and then both with LEDs.

I used the older original style boards he made for the 80 Series (took 'em out of my 80 when I sold it) and stuck them in the 100. Vast improvement, and they fit fine. Definitely a worthwhile upgrade.

Yep. May seem spendy for a little light, but it's much better light inside and cheap insurance for something stupid that can kill your battery.

Donno about yours but if you leave the lights on for a while and don't open/close doors it will automatically kick off. Forget the actual time period but it's not long enough to kill the battery, or even drain it much.

Some time from now you'll have kids. Those kids will dink with every switch in your car. They will move the dome switch from "door", where it turns off automatically, to "on". Your future wife won't notice this. You won't be aware of it until she asks you why the truck won't start.

TM, install doesnt look to difficulut. but just incase howd it go??? Thanks
If you're unable to change a light bulb in your home, do not attempt this.

By the time I have kids the cars will recognize the owners fingerprint and probably DNA, allowing me to restrict changing settings to certain people(ie:me). Also by then the 6000 series cruiser will be able to offroad in places no 80 or 100 could go...since it will hover

Personal experience is a little different than a few pictures. A little help or info would be great. But if thats too much dont hurt yourself.

Cory is just saying that it's as easy as changing a light bulb.

Pop off the plastic diffuser, remove the original bulb. Clip in the new LED module. Pop the plastic diffuser back in place. Job done.

My recommendation is to have the the doors shut and the original bulb cold before trying to pry it out with your fingers - otherwise you will burn your finger tips on the hot glass or end tips.

With the large number of my old style LED modules installed in 60 and 80 series (and a few 100 series) it would appear that most folk find the installation reasonably easy :)

cheers,
george.
