I received a set of these for my 08 FJ for Christmas.

Dont know much about them beyond the excellent reviews on Amazon. That may or may not mean much so I figured I would ask you guys before I install them. I see they are around $80 so I want to make sure they are good to go or if I should return them and get something else.

I dont have to have to very best available. I just want a significant upgrade over the mediocre factory dome lights.

I am thinking that since these are LED, they have to be a pretty good step up. What say you guys?

We call our's the "Kitchen Light". I get as many comments on that dome light as I do on anything. Great mod. Well worth the bucks as far as I can tell ya.

am I missing a picture some where??
No. The OP was just asking about the Putco dome lights in general. No pics were included. I myself have been looking at different brands for mine.

Well I don't know about Putco, but I just spent about 1/10th of the cost for an el-cheapo LED dome light that should flame-on the interior just fine. For the price, I can throw it way if it doesn't work out. Others have used these with good success, so why not try?

I would really like to see some pictures of these installed in an FJ. Are they bright enough to install outside the vehicle?
-under the hood?
-under the side view mirrors?

The ones from DealExtreme fit the FJ without issues?

Got the deal extreme ones and they work perfectly.
+1 on the deal extremes. Just got mine and they are crazy bright. Seems silly to me to spend the money on the putco's.

The inside of the truck can be pretty dark when you searching for something - the Putco lights light up the inside of the truck extremely well. One of the best mods I've done.

Will post pics once I get them.

As for Deal Extreme, I will NEVER use them again for anything. They sent me a defective light and their CS is the worst I have ever encountered. They demanded I send lots of pics, even pictures of the box BEFORE I opened it. Well, it was TOO LATE for that.

Fvck DX. Never again.
