Trunk lights are used in the trunk or cargo area to illuminate the space at night. From the factory, the bulbs are incandescent, lighting up in a yellowish color.

By changing the factory bulb to an LED, you can illuminate the area with a much brighter light, and add a pure white, luxury look.

The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulb.



SML8: This bulb has a standard 44mm Loop design, with nine 1210-size Epistar SMD chips and a protective cover for added style. 

SML9: Standard 44mm Loop connectors, with nine 5050-size Epistar SMDs for superior brightness.

Fitment. All bulbs use a quality 44mm loop design, with aluminum contacts, for direct replacement of your 44mm loop-style bulb. Just remove the old bulb, and plug in the new LED.

Included in your order is ONE BULB.


These LEDs are currently only available in white color, for maximum illumination.


Diode Dynamics offers several brightness options so you can choose what fits you best.  These options are listed by the design and the lumen output of each bulb:

SML8: Slightly lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern color of LED.
SML9: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs.

Lumens: BUYER BEWARE! Most sellers just provide "calculated" lumen numbers, based on the maximum potential brightness of the LED chips on the bulb. For example, if a bulb has five 10-lumen chips, they will rate it at 50 lumens. However, this is not accurate, as the design of an LED bulb does not get rid of heat fast enough to run the LEDs at maximum.

These "calculated" lumen ratings are much, much higher than the true, measured light output, so it will look like competitors' bulbs are brighter than ours. This is because Diode Dynamics does not provide inflated "calculated" numbers; we believe it is misleading. We test the actual brightness of the bulbs in our lab, to provide real lumen output measurements. Our measurements are accurate, but they are usually much lower than the misleading "calculated" figures. Please click here to learn more about LED brightness measurement.



LED Components. Diode Dynamics uses only the highest quality LED chips in the production of its bulbs. This means we use only brand-name suppliers such as Epistar, Cree, Osram, and Samsung.

While Diode Dynamics bulbs may look the same as others on the market, most copycat bulbs use economy-grade LED chips in order to reduce costs. This greatly reduces the reliability and overall brightness of the bulb when you compare it to Diode Dynamics.

Construction. Although LED technology allows for extremely long bulb life, the market is flooded with cheap LED bulbs that fail prematurely due to inferior construction. The worst enemy of LEDs is excessive heat, and when bulbs are not designed properly, they do not disperse heat as well, leading to premature failure.

Off-brand, cheap bulbs exhibit poor solder uniformity, high levels of flux in the solder, uneven chip placement, low-gauge terminal wires, poor assembly, and bulbs held together with inferior adhesives. At best, solder joints will crack and fail on low-quality LEDs after a few weeks of use. In the worst case, these bulbs can damage housings as the extra flux and adhesive evaporates and creates a residue on the lens of the housing.

Diode Dynamics bulbs are produced with modern, computerized equipment, and only the best materials, to ensure complete uniformity, high quality, and long bulb life.

All Diode Dynamics products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year limited replacement warranty. For more information, please view the Warranty Information page.

  4. Nice Bulb Review by LiquiDGD

    Great improvement over stock bulb. A little pricey but that should cover the warranty of the product. Super fast shipping and free swag! Thanks DD. (Posted on 2/12/16)

  5. Great LEDs Review by Carlos

    I bought these LEDs for the trunk of my 2014 Dodge Challenger SXT. I opted for the brightest option. Install is very quick and easy. Light output on these vs the original bulb is night and day. (Posted on 2/12/16)

  6. Bright Light Review by Joe

    It's worth the money. Now I have a bright white light in my trunk instead of the yellowed out light. Would recommend if your looking to see better at night in your trunk. (Posted on 1/16/16)

  7. For a 2015 Review by American Muscle

    The fitment was just fine. This is my second light only for a newer model Challenger. Looks very good! (Posted on 4/24/15)

  8. Very easy to do Review by American Muscle

    Just as easy as changing a household light bulb. Makes my trunk look clean and bright. (Posted on 1/8/15)

  9. You'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner Review by Rich S.

    Took 5 minutes and swapped out the stock bulb for this LED. I tried to take a picture of the stock bulb illumination with my cell and it barely showed up. After changing out to the LED, it was no problem to get a photo of the LED illumination with the same cell phone camera! After installing this, you'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner. (Posted on 5/7/14)

  10. Excellent light Review by Willy

    Can finally see in the trunk. Despite a mixup which was quickly taken care of, got the light in and installed it in 30 seconds. Posted up pictures on the product page of a med kit in trunk with light on. Can easily see it, no shadows or anything! (Posted on 11/6/13)
