Front Map Lights have been converted to Ford Police Interceptor Tactical RED LED's, which is the best color light for retaining your night vision ability at 600nm wavelength.
The regular 3000K LED dome lights are about 500nm, which are bad for night vision.
BLUE 400nm wavelength is the worst and ruins night vision in your eyes rods for a longer period of time!

RED LED Bulbs I used in he Front on Amazon; however, I have no idea what would fit your particular
vehicle, nor the wiring changes required.
