Re: puddle light

I installed underglow entry lights on mine. I tapped into the driver footwell interior light. You could do the same and run a wire through the door..

Re: puddle light

Here's a pic of the lights.. they run the length of the rocker

should be plenty of space in the mirror to put a flush mount led.. people have put pinhole cameras there

Re: puddle light

Re: puddle light

Hi, I have seen puddle lights showing car brand pictures for sale on UK Ebay, and noticed since range rover evoque start showing a picture in there puddle lights, the mini is adopting it as well, and it will probably grow through other manufacturers.

Re: puddle light

The 2014 Cherokee has puddle lamps that I am considering trying to apply to my 2011 Grand Cherokee. I too am interested in what Ronsse610 wants to do, under the mirror, not a light strip. There is actually a small panel on the underside which could be replaced with a light.

I have already installed the illuminated door sills so know how to hook up to the interior lighting system. Just need to find the appropriate hardware.

Re: puddle light

The 2014 Grand Cherokee has puddle lights on the underside of the mirror. This is not available as an accessory from Mopar [yet].
