    This is awesome, but any chances you'd remove the panels and show that they plug into and any module pn's?

    If the plug is there for the light on the door card and not in the harness of a sub-Laramie you could tie in to the footwell light harness and run your own wire to the door cards.

    So what kinda light is behind there?
    Doesnt look like just one LED. Maybe a super bright one focused in those two spots

    Unfortunately I am the sole caretaker of twin 2 year olds while my wife is out of state taking care of her sick grandfather. If it were something I could do really quick I would consider it but I can't. What I can say about it is it does not look like one bright light, it just looks like one regular led light that shines into the clear lens and the glow of it likes the Door. Like optic cable passes light. At most there's one light on each end of the clear tube for the back door and probably just one light that lights up the door handle. My best bet is that it's not an accessory that you can add but part of the Laramie door package when they install it it probably comes as one unit with the door interior. I really don't know if they can sell the part because it may not come separate from the door panel. They may just sell a replacement LED bulb. Then again my wife tells me I'm wrong all the time.

    On second thought, you could probably achieve the same glowing light if you just grinded out a section of the plastic and installed an LED strip light behind the hole. I'm sure you could certainly get a 12 volt power source in there.

    It looks like maybe the black piece that surrounds the door handle can be swapped out and then run the wires on our own.

    The trick would be to find the pn for this and someone try it

    I just ordered some on Sunday. I'll post here if they are the lighted handles. Note that the standard Express bezels are NOT interchangeable with higher trims...

    The sport and laramie bezels are definitely the same shape.
    I am going to get a part number for the bezel with led and swap them out.

    The lights in the doors are on with the headlights correct?
    Tying into the footwells would only turn them on when the doors are open There's other options for wiring though so thats not a concern
