Default Wiring Off-Road Lights

I'm wiring up KC Driving Slimlites. Pretty simple, but I don't want to splice into the high-beams. I need a switch wire (accessory) in the cab area to connect the switch (white wire)... so that I can operate the lights independently. Anyone know of an easily accessible wire that I can tap in to? This is just for the switch. The lights are powered thru the relay via the battery. Thanks!

Crickets... Nobody ever wired up an accessory with a switch wire in the cab?

I tapped into the power outlet in my console. I used that connection due to it being switched and I have three switches connected to it for my onboard compressor, horn selector and a switch to open a solenoid to drain my air tank. You can see the switches here: http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread....132797&page=84

Thanks mrolow! How did you get access to the wire? Does the power outlet just pull out, or did you remove the entire console?

The chrome ring will come off with a little pulling, it has four clips holding it down. Under the rubber insert in the front tray, there are two screws. The power jack can be unplugged after the upper cover is removed. If you want to drill the holes outside the truck, there are screws under the rubber inserts in the cup holders.
