Light in the glove box would be useless. Unless you have nothing in it, you would not be able to see in it.

Probably some Mustang owners put their own light in there, maybe with an on/off switch.




IDEA:
It would be nice if they made the lights by the rear view mirror retractable. If you drop somethinng on the floor or LOOK in the glove box for something, all you have to do is reach up and pull the light down.
I think that would be a cool idea. Both lights would be able to retract to see on the floor and in back seat.floor.

Yes, I notice no under the hood. Found that out when I had to add windshield wiper fluid.

Most cars I had ,had light under the hood by they suck.

Flashlight is alot better when you have one with you.

The trunk lights works great.

My '04 F-150 has a light under the hood, and it works rather well for lighting up the engine compartment enough to see. It also has a hood that stays open on its own.

You just added $1000. I don't need it... though I do wish the IUP came with a passenger vanity light. My gf turns on the little center spot light every 10 minutes to primp. I think I'll get her a clamp light or something.

BTW, what is "trim on the deck lid?"

Pretty sure my glove box locks. I'll have to double check it, but I recall locking my wallet in there at a show last summer. Also have rear floor mats that came with it. '05 S281

What the hell can you fit in the glovebox that you need a light to dig around there for? I can barely fit my owners manual in there..

+1...i have to slide the manual so far back i feel like it will come out the other side...i think i would rather have a bigger glovebox before i would the light

ford should have deffinatly put a light under the hood though, even though i have a mag-lite that i would rather use...still should have had one

on another note, what can everybody fit into thier glovebot???

all i can fit into mine is my owners manual, mechanix gloves, and a light

I don't understand this thread, am I one of the few who actually looked the car over thoroughly before buying. Were you guys sleeping or what, when you made your purchase....??
