    Awesome! Never thought of that? Before I tear it apart and break it, do you know what bulb it takes? Is it the same as the T/A door panel lights, cause I got the L.E.D.s for them?

    LEDs for sure. The autozone red bulbs fade especially if your a DD and work/drive mostly at night, plus they melted my lense and cracked the mirror when I did a speaker change one day.
