    I wonder if anybody out there has installed some type of LED light right above the rear view mirror . I find it rather awkward to hunt for the switch behind my head . I may just attach some type of square flash light to the area above the rear view mirror. Ideal set up would be directly connecting such a light to the 12V electrical system without any wiring being exposed .

    I mounted one of these in my previous jeeps. Haven’t put one in the JL yet. It’s bendable and can be turned to face either side.

    I also find that your body cast a shadow with the light behind you which makes it impossible to see. I've yet to see any aftermarket interior lights.

    I would think you could find something that would work at Canadian Tire. Most folks in the States know nothing about this AMAZING store. I am up in Ontario (London, Stratford, St. Thomas areas) frequently and I always make a stop at the store when I am up there. Good luck!!!!

    Just got a Quadratec catalogue in the mail yesterday, and it's got a battery-powered light you can mount up there.

    Ya, sometimes I really think when Jeep designed the interior of the JL they were smoking Weed and their designers brains were like Jello. A lot of common sense was missing in the design.
