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.

Turn the interior lights all of the way up with the right side roller if you have issues with the light on the sound bar. Failing that, get one of them free harbor freight flashlights. LED, run off of three AAA batteries, plenty bright and if it grows legs are gets broken you'll have no reason to be mad.
OK, thanks for the hint : )

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.

Not sure exactly what you are looking for but here are few that might work out:

Aim-able LED Map/Dome Light w/ Switch
Baja Designs LED, Dome Light w/Switch
LED Dome Light - USB Rechargeable
LED Dome Light with billet mount

ATV dome light search

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.
