    I noticed very little lighting in the cargo area of the 4Runner.
    The two dome lights in the lift gate does not illuminate the interior very well.
    I added two aluminum casing strip lights from VLEDs 5000k costs $8 each.

    I apologize that I do not include a HOW-TO because I have little patience while working.
    I ran power and ground up towards the lift gate area and soldered to cargo dome circuit.
    Took me a long 3 hours from start to finish.
    2 cubby pockets where is houses the lights at an angle without it being an eye sore.
    Here is the output picture at night. Let me know your thoughts.

    Looks great. I noticed that too. What cargo mat is that? I like it better than my husky liner one and it looks like it fits over the 3rd row nicely.

    which cargo liner is that? does it split down the middle to allow the rear seats to come up?

    Looks good! I have the same cargo mat and it works well.

    Is that a canvas back cover as well? Those second row seats look to have something covering them.

    Yes I have the canvas back too. If I did it again I'd buy complete kit then sell the cargo area. Second row only was $100 plus shipping.

    Added same strip lights to foot well area a while back. I plan to add another pair under front seats to illuminate rear floor.
