not a very common option in most trucks. the ones i have seen are usually fubar'd from what looks like heat damage. i think if you want something there you are best to build it yourself and use led lights

I have one in my '85 Royal SE. I was able to find the bulb online but not the fixture.

all filament bulbs get hot which is why i like led lights. i also like the white light that led's usually put out especially when installed in the right spot
