Could not stand the fact that the trunk lights are so weak so decided to add some extra LED lighting. Got the kit on eBay for $15. Tapped into the trunk light wire by the fuse box. (Yes I know my trunk needs a cleaning!)

Great mod. Did you need a resistor to keep the LEDs from staying on?

Very good idea, all you need to do is conceal or dress up the wiring with a wiring cover

Nope, it wasn't needed since I also kept the regular light bulbs in place and just wired into it.

Here's the link if anyone's interested (I'm not affiliated with the seller in any way).
