    Does anybody have auxiliary interior lighting that they use in their trucks? I have a small goose neck cig. lighter one but I would like to have better overall interior lighting. Perhaps a higher wattage bulb in overhead? Any ideas? Thanks:D

    I use those round plastic dome lights like they use in the police cars,and taxis.Plenty of light,just not too pretty to look at.

    If you want something nice,check some of the van and truck shops.They have lots of nice overhead lighting.

    I'll have to look at that for my spreader control. I was surprised that it didn't have any back lighting.

    I use one of those little neon glow map lights in the cig lighter to illuminate the spreader and plow controls.They don't get hot,and cast a soft dull light.

    ISnt the snow you're pushin outside the truck?

    Just kidding! :D

    Truckstops carry small Stick on lights quite cheap that have built in switches. the whole light is maybe 1 1/2 inches long by 1 inch, not real bright to annoyy when driving either.

    If your looking for a soft light take the cover off your interior light and paint the inside with red nail polish. It is transparent and not a whole lot of reflection at night on the windows. and you can see the interior very well.
