I also left everything stock.
Not likely. but... The thing is the driver in the bulb can make electrical noise so you never know what will happen. And there are differences in bulbs too. Some are worse than others. I've never heard of anything horrible happening though.Can LED bulbs in the interior dome, map, and vanity lights really cause issues with the truck’s electrical system?
The LEDs that I have currently installed really don’t have much, if any at all, fade in. They’re either on or off. But they’re ones I got from Amazon, not a name brand.The main reason I switched my interior lights is because the "fade on" was way too slow. I opened the door, stood there 1-2 seconds and then could see to grab something. The LED's fade on much faster. Since I park in the garage and have black leather interior it is almost always dark inside when I open the truck doors (rarely open the doors in the daylight unless I'm away from home). The fade out is no longer smooth, but in steps, but that doesn't really bother me.
Have you tried red incandescents?All lights except Fog’s are factory/ stock.
Would like to switch the dome light to red LED - possibly the driver side and passenger side map lights also to red LED.
Only reservations are that I have read instances of LED‘s causing oddities with the electrical system and secondly time to put in the research to determine which LED’s beforehand.
I see Sylvania has amber colored ones. I wonder how they’d look in the interior of the truck.
I think that’s the point of the red lights. They’re supposed to be easier on the eyes than the bright white light from LEDs.Does red just lower the brightness or is there something else I am missing?
Yes, red light has the longest wavelength of visible light and therefore causes the least amount of glare. Red has traditionally proven to be the best color of light to help preserve your night vision, although some studies show that low intensity green light also works very well.Does red just lower the brightness or is there something else I am missing?
On my 2018 ZR2 Diesel, I swapped out the interior and reverse OEM. No headlights. Instead of swapping headlights, see picture.Just curious how many guys have all stock lighting in their truck. I swapped out the interior (and others, but not headlights yet) to LEDs mainly for the whiter light. I just like the appearance of the white light vs. the yellowish glow of the OEM incandescent bulbs.
If you still have the OEM interior, cargo, and plate lights, any plans to swap to LED or are you happy with them as they are?
I made the switch to all leds. The only one that I regret is the backup lamps. The bright light washes out the backup camera. I don't drive much at night anymore so it's really not so big a deal.I still have the interior lights as they came from the factory... Hardly ever use them, plus I am sensitive to light so no need for brighter lights in the cab.
Cargo lights were swapped as part of upgrading the 3rd (High Mount) Brake Light. But I don't use the cargo lights.
Headlight Lights and Fog/Driving Lights are all LED now
Plate Lights are still factory. Seeing my plate is not going to prevent you from rear ending... So I don't care about them
