    not trying to create an Explorer 1500, but my wife's explorer has ambient lighting that's always on when the car is on. It's kind of nice.

    I already had two of these up front in the factory location but Sunday I picked up 8 of the T-10 style housings and pigtails from the junkyard for $20 and added under seat lighting so I could see better in the rear floorboard. Completely satisfied. I wrapped my wiring in tape similar to what they use at the factory and it looks great in my opinion. Not overly happy with how it is mounted but I wanted it as low as I could get it to shine in the rear as much as possible and in the center. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    has anyone sourced an actual plug end that will fit in the factory harness for custom lighting?

    Hi there. A bit late to this thread but wanted to ask @mpglol or anyone if they can share the photos of the first post?

    Photobucket is not working anymore and would be great if anyone can share them/similar ones.

    Looks really good. I been looking for a way to add floor lights in the back seat. Where did you tap power for the lights?

    you just need the light assemblies to install.. a friend of mine gets them from where he works and gives them to me to sell for him here and on ebay.. generally $23 a set shipped .. he hasnt dropped any off in a couple weeks but i will reach out to him this weekend and see when he expects more..
