PRSman25 I have the kit VonKrause makes and its great.
Great kit and an easy price. Does exactly what it says it will do.
Just be sure to pull out the fuse for the power mirrors and dome lights before you go tinkering around in there. It will save you an awful headache.

There's a guy in the Buy/Sell/Trade forum that sells custom LED trunk kits - look for a thread by a poster named VonKrause. (I think that's how his name is spelled)

From the pictures I've seen, they're hidden, and they're nice & bright.

Here's a link to his thread:

BigMikeD215 Anyone ? Get me the wires to be spliced for two led strips...

vermen1993 Pyroinsa stole my thunder, I did mine the same way. and as far as taking the bulb out before it gets too hot, I dropped the back seats and crawled in from the cabin so that the light wouldn't turn on. as for the strips, I just went to autozone and grabbed two blue LED strips and wired them into the old wiring, now when I shut my trunk, the LED's shut off as well, no extra wiring involved. It took me maybe 20 minutes all said and done.

SkyPilot LED strips can be had on ebay for around $10 and in any color. I just wanted to be able to see all my junk at night

calebstubstad what pyro did is also what I did, just cut the wires and wired in 4 SMD 5050 leds from oznium. works well, nice and bright easy to do too

katiekay You could also cut the wires off the back of the trunk light and wire in led strips! All the LED's are wired into the OEM light

Sniper Focus Twist the socket and that will detach it from the lens and pull the bulb out. There's also a release tab on the back of the lens if you need to pull that out first.
