I really like the look of the LED lights on the sides, front and rear of trucks.

Has anyone sort of overdone the lighting process and your rig looks like a Christmas tree at night?

I'm thinking of maybe 4 ambers and 1 red per side and maybe some more ambers on the front and reds on the rear end...

Would you know how many LED's I could put on my 2002 Ford Powerstroke Diesel 8x12 box van without overloading the alternator or charging system? Being reasonable of course.

Would anyone know who offers the biggest selection and prices on LED truck lights? Like online stuff?

Also interested in lighting up the inside of the box and cockpit with LED's. Instead of using the stock overhead dome light.

Know of any articles on how to wire it?

The power draw is very low on LEDs since they don't lose energy to heat. Most likely, you'd either go broke or blind before you overloaded an alternator. Particularly if you are doing things like replacing brake/tail light bulbs with LED clusters.
