Default Bed Lights

Has anyone hooked up any under rail bed lighting ? I have come accross these in some aftermarket catalogs and was wondering if anyone has them installed and where you tapped the power from.

I would run the power right off of the bed light switch-light line. You could either tap right in, or use a relay, but an LED kit wouldn't draw that much amperage so you could get away with tapping it right in. This would allow you to just hit the bed light button and you'd have the lights off the 3rd brake as well as the bed lighting.

I like the Xtang lighting kit in mine. Lots of light when its dark. I wired mine to the trailer wiring constant 12v. I wanted to be able to leave them on if i want while i'm working out of the box. (not that I ever put anything work related or dirty for that matter in my box)
