Looks good. I have some LED strips that I was going to use in the same spot, but these are very bright.

Only issue I see is if you take your inside panel off again, you will have to undo the wiring or the panel will not pull away completely. I would hook up some sort of disconnect in it so you could take it apart.

That's a good point, I thought about putting spade connectors on it but didn't. This is the only second time I've ever had the panel off and there's enough slack in them you can just lean them agains the bottom of the door if you were working on the speaker or something.

Well, I had some eagle eye LED's from a project I never did so figured I would use them for my Puddle lights.

The Super Crew has a space between the 2 door pockets that I mounted it into. I used some disconnects so I can take the panels off when I need to.
Pretty easy install and looks pretty good.

LOL, I hit post instead of advanced to add the pics.

Yes, it is very bright (only did drivers side tonight, will do the pass side later, and would like to do the rear doors, but need to get some power to the doors for that.

I think the LED's you used do put out more light that what I put in, but I already had them so it was cheap (and they are like $5 a pair).

Yeah I think I'm going to try that tomorrow. I can't remember which wire is for the dome lights though. The big pain will be feeding the wire into the doors.
