What shade of blue is used to light up the interior switched and what not? I am thinking of getting some kind of ambeient lighting and want it to match. I do not have a vehicle yet to look at.

2022 Badlands. The lack of interior ambient lighting annoys the heck out of me. Specifically lighting in the footwells and glove box. In a dark environment, a person shouldn't have to find a flashlight to look for something dropped on the floor or in the glove box. Just sayin' ....

I had the same issue with my 2001 Escape XLT. I brainstormed a coupla' ideas, and with the convenience of a nearby Radio Shack, I made the mods to correct these issues (my glove box fix won't work on the Sport). I think I'll put the lighting issue on my Arizona winter project list.

Yes, I just want the color to match. As a guess I think it might be what some led lights call ice blue.

I use these sometimes. They are nice because you can rotate through the colors. I’ll have to see what the blues look like. I’ll try to get some pics later

I want to get a single hole mount led to mount in the upper console to shine down onto the center console. Then a small strip by your feet. I am considering the Escape cup holders as they are illuminated. The light uptop would be the one non blue color. I figure soft white would be best for that one. Not sure yet though.

Search threads on the cup holders. They stopped putting the wire into the console last year sometime. On a Badlands you’ll have to splice into another wire to get power. It won’t be a plug and play swap.

I figured i would be looking for a lighting wire to tap into or wire it with the floor lights if I add it. Not sure, It's still a thought in process. Half of which I'll forget by the time My BS BL is delivered.

Looks good. I want to go with something like this color. I think it may be a closer match to the blue in the lighting on the switches and even the escape cup holder. What do you think? https://www.google.com/search?q=ice+blue+led+strip&oq=ice&aqs=chrome.3.69i57j46i67i199i433i465j35i39l2j0i67j46i20i263i433i512j46i433i512j0i67j46i433i512j46i67i131i433.5204j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
and this in a warm white over head shining down to the floor console. https://www.superbrightleds.com/vehicle-lights/led-accent-lighting/led-wired-bolts/bolt-beam-12mm-led-light-12b-x
