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.

  1. Big improvement over OEM Review by Deluxe

    This is the 2nd LED bulb I tried and by far the brightest. Bought a few item from DD and it seems like the orders arrive the next day. (Posted on 8/16/17)

  2. Red Light district Review by ERIK

    Loving the way my Trunk lights up red. It is Red enough so you know it and bright enough to actually find something in your trunk.
    Install was a breeze I suggest you tap end with connectors to make light come on if it doesn't the turn 180 degrees to contact other end and it will light up.
    Like a Red Light Rent Party (for those of you old enough to Remember) (Posted on 8/12/17)

  3. I can see now Review by Theo

    I swapped out the standard bulbs with the LED bulbs and the difference is phenomenal. I am able to see everything in the trunk clearly. I got the cool white LED and I love the look of it. Install was easy and took me less than a minute to pop out the old one and put the new one in. No issues at all. (Posted on 4/25/17)

  4. Now I see Review by Leander

    The 2016 SRT trunk is a dark spot... Until I was able to light it up with the LED board! Wow what an improvment! Plug and play, only very little bending of the original "holder" required to keep the slightly smaller LED board secure in place. 30sec job in total! (Posted on 12/21/16)

  5. My trunk is lit!!!! Review by Scott

    Pry out the lens housing, unplug from wire, pull out old lamp, install new LED lamp, test, re-install housing--done!!! That easy, and quick, great results, lights up the trunk!! (Posted on 12/18/16)

  6. Nice and Bright Review by Gagan

    The LED is 10X better than the factory yellow bulb, lights up the whole trunk and looks great. Very easy to install. (Posted on 8/11/16)

  7. 2 minutes to install Review by Richard

    i got the 9 led and its much brighter than the stock yellow light. it took 2 minutes to take out the old one and pop in the new led's.diode dynamics never lets me down! (Posted on 8/8/16)

  8. Light up the trunk in style! Review by JR

    The OEM trunk bulb is poor and has an ugly yellow glow. The SML9 in cool white is a perfect LED bulb for the large Challenger trunk. I can finally see everything in the trunk...thanks to DD! I highly recommend this bulb and a rating of 10! (Posted on 6/1/16)

  9. Awesome light, looks great on my Challenger Trunk Review by Ken

    I ordered this LED bulb in blue for my 2015 Challenger RT. The design is great and installation only took a few seconds.

    Great light, very bright and looks fantastic. (Posted on 4/16/16)

  10. Very nice output Review by Brian

    Nice, solid light for my trunk. Looks great and install was literally 15 seconds. (Posted on 2/16/16)

  11. Cool White 6K SML9 Review by Todd

    Very easy installation, about 2 minutes total. The SML9 option at 88 lumens is a great replacement and adds a lot more light to the trunk well over the stock bulb. (Posted on 1/5/16)

  12. Very bright! Review by Art

    I installed the SML9 cool white in my 16 Scat Pack Shaker and I am really surprised with how bright it was. It was very easy to install and it lights up the entire trunk. Way better than the ugly yellow stock bulb. Thanks DD! (Posted on 1/4/16)

  13. Forget stock bulbs Review by tlunchbox

    Stock bulbs look ugly, I got the leds for my truck to see what I'm looking for at night, I couldn't see much with stock and the cool white leds helped me see what's in my trunk. Great product (Posted on 8/7/15)

  14. Very nice improvement over stock Review by txborn58

    Installed the SML9 Cool White in the 2015 Challenger SRT. Noticeable difference and took all of 3 minutes. Nice crisp white light. Hardest part was getting these old bones in and out of the trunk! Before and after pics posted. (Posted on 6/24/15)
