Check out this thread. My posts #73K list the LEDs I bought and install video.My wife just got a '18 CR-V this week. So far so good. The lighting in the rear cargo area when opening the tailgate seems weak at best. Has anyone done any LED mods or LED strip mods in the back? How did it go? Pictures would be sweet.
Second this. Replace the rear dome with LEDs while you're at it.Check out this thread. My posts #73K list the LEDs I bought and install video.
I used some VLED bulbs for the rear cargo and reverse lights and they made a drastic difference. Also used cheap Sirius branded leds for the rest of the interior and they too are much brighter than the stock bulbs. You may want to try different bulbs.I replaced those rear cargo area lights with LEDs and was a little disappointed. Not the best pic but you can see the stock bulb does illuminate more areas on the left side than the LED bulb illuminates on the right sight. Yes, there's a difference in color but notice how much better the floor is illuminated on the left side. To me, that brilliant white light is irritating to look at.
