Here is my (well) under $30 mod.
I was tired of not being able to see in my hatch at night with the factory light soÖ
I went on Ebay and got the cheapest LED strips I could find. 2 of them for $3.50 SHIPPED!!
I spliced the LED in to the wire which led to the factory light ( *warning* because these LEDís were so cheap, the wires on them were very thin and somewhat difficult to work with. Have patience)
The results. MUCH better visibility over the factory light. I may try another location for the LED strip to see if it will better light up my hatch as the LED is rather high up, and not really pointed towards the bottom.
