An All-New LED Interior Light Kit: Unique Style Racing (USR) LED Dome and Interior Lighting Kit Step-By-Step Install & Review for 5th Gen 4Runner
Unique Style Racing recently sent me their all-new LED Interior Light Kit to review.
This full 9-piece kit comes with:
- Full replacement dome light
- 2 map lights
- 4 door lights
- 2 cargo lights in your choice of red, blue or white
The dome light can be purchased separately as well. USR sent me a red and blue kit to review, so I will be focusing on those colors. I made a full install video on my YouTube channel, so feel free to check that out as well.

LED stands for Light Emitting Diode and offers more lighting for less power and heat. It can give a modern and custom look to any vehicle. It stands out on the 4Runner since these vehicles come with so many halogen bulbs from that factory. We have seen a few other Interior LED Light Kits on the blog here but today we are covering the USR Interior LED Light kit.
The USR kit is cool because you can customize it to come in either white, blue, or red. Let’s jump into it!
Installing these lights is pretty straightforward. The LEDs replace the incandescent/halogen bulbs from the factory. It is very helpful to have some needle-nose pliers and a plastic trim pry tool, like this one on Amazon.
Step 1. Unboxing
The piece kit option comes with all of the bulbs laid out nicely in the packaging. The dome light is in the center, map and door lights to the left and hatch lights to the right.
Step 2. Install Map Lights
For the map lights, the covers need to be pried from the inside edge, as they are hinged.
Once popped off, the existing bulb can be pulled out with pliers. You may also need to use some duct tape to help with grip. Don’t be afraid to wiggle these out.
Step 3. Install Dome Light
For the dome light, pry the cover off from the front, near the switch.
The bulb is then exposed. The USR dome light used the same connector. Once that is installed, the factory light toggle switch should power on the LED. If not, flip the connector.
Tuck the wires in and gently press the dome light into place.
Step 4. Install Door Lights
Next, we have the 4 door lights. These all work the same.
By prying the whole unit out, you can access the connector and disconnect the assembly. The lens/cover comes off by sliding the gray tray out.
Then, there is a shroud around the light that can be popped off. At this point, the bulb can be replaced. Repeat this for each door.
Step 5. Install Hatch/Liftgate Lights
Moving to the hatch/cargo area lights, the whole unit comes out by prying it from the left edge.
Once popped out, it can be disconnected from the plug. The cover is easily removed and the bulb can be accessed. Install it in reverse order.
That is it! You’re done.
These lights are bright and colorful! Install was straight-forward. USR makes it easy by providing a whole kit with nice packaging. The red and blue colors are rich and do not flicker or anything, like some other LEDs I have tried.
