As mentioned in other threads, I bought 20' of Led tape to run up and down the inside peak of the roof on drivers side, a micro dimmer switch that is wired inline to that, tapped into 12v used for the roof shutoff switch and added a lighted toggle in the bench front near the furnace ... All parts from ebay for a grand total of less that $15 delivered. At highest setting the inside is bright with indirect lighting, at it's lowest it casts a nice indirect glow like a sunset. We rarely use the ceiling lights now, the light is far better from the full length indirect.
