I installed JDM ASTARS and have no lines in the camera, they are bright enough they do wash it out sometimes, but the view through the mirrors is great.
I tapped into the dome light wire in the BCM. Its above your left foot when sitting in the drivers seat, once you remove the cover its the left most connector, bottom right grey wire. I believe its pin 1 but I didn't really look, I used a fluke meter to test it. There are other places you can tap in, behind the drivers a-pillar or at the dome light switch in the overhead console. Just don't use a crimp on wire tap, either remove the pin and solider to it or strip a spot in the wire casing and solider to it, then you never need to touch it again. If you cant solider use a posi-tap connector at least they don't damage the wire strands or corrode.
Sorry I hid the link in "LED kit" was that the more information you were looking for?
I bought this LED kit for $13.99, it had enough modules to do the interior and the bed. I'm very impressed with the quality for the cost of these modules. The modules are UL listed, waterproof and pre-wired. The kit came with a harness, additional wire, real 3M adhesive pads, and screws if you chose to hard mount the modules. The light is 5000k, and looks to me just slightly yellow to the factory interior lights although that might just be the surface its shining on, its very close. I used 1 module at each seat and put the remaining 8 modules in the bed in addition to the factory bed lights. The bed has areas under the rail where the steel is stamped at an angle that made a perfect spot to mount these lights.
The 24v Brushless Impacts at Lowes have the following specs: 1/4" 1800in/lb (150 ft/lb) 3/8" 150 ft/lb 1/2" 200 ft/lb (650 ft/lb break away) I have taken lugs torqued to 100 ft/lbs off with the 1/4" impact, it wouldn't be my go to tool the 1/2" removes them with zero effort. The great thing about these over the others on the market is the power of the 24 volts and that they put the electronics that are normally in the battery in the tool. This makes the batteries very cheap: Kobalt 24-Volt Max 1.5-Amp-Hours Lithium Power Tool Battery $10.00 Kobalt 24-Volt Max 2.0-Amp-Hours Lithium Power Tool Battery $20.00 Kobalt 24-Volt Max 4.0-Amp-Hours Lithium Power Tool Battery $50.00 Kobalt 24-Volt Max 5.0-Amp-Hours Lithium Power Tool Battery $89.00 I have 5ea of the 1.5-Amp-Hour batteries that I rotate on the charger, it lets me keep a battery in each tool I have and gives a total run time equal to a 7.5 amps for $50.00. The 1.5 has enough power to run the Lowes flashlight at full power for over 7 hours continuous. The battery is a loss leader for Lowes it has 6ea Samsung 18650 2500mAh batteries that sell for over $5.00 ea. I bought one just to take apart and harvest the batteries for my tactical flashlight.

I was disappointed there is nothing out there with a single 10" in one half and storage in the other, that is what I plan to build.
When you scroll through them with your mouse wheel, use your middle finger, you can pretend you are flipping us all off.
Day I drove it home just under two months ago. The running boards lasted 300 miles, the muffler made it to around 500.
