Default Bed Lighting

2013 Update below in post#8

All I need now is warm weather and these bad boys will be going in!!!



I'll be splicing into my dome circuit with my footwell lighting so they will activate with unlocking the truck via keyfob. I sure wish my Ram would fit into my garage!

Detailed pic's and installation wiring will come on install day!

So, no relay on the install? Just spliced into the dome light?

I'm looking to do the same thing, only with the cargo light, so I'm wondering if you can do it by just splicing like that or if there are drawbacks to that plan.

Here they are installed....
Pigtail going into downtube to run along frame and into the cab. I couldn't get a good pic of where I entered the cab however there is a blank spot under the main harness that is open.

I stumbled upon these instructions months ago and used them to tie into the dome circuit for my interior lighting. I t'd into my interior led harness to do the bed lighting.
http://www.ramforumz.com/attachment....3&d=1305341968
I followed the attached instructions almost verbatim for the bed lighting.


You will pull power from the yellow wire in slot 13 and ground from slot 11. This should be all 11-12 Rams. The 13's are different and is shown below.








I tied into the dome circuit so that they will activate with the keyfob.






***2013 UPDATE***
For those of us with a 2013 the tie in instructions are a little different. You will use spots 11 and 16. I just used small spade connectors pushed into the plug. Works great as I don't like splicing into factory harnesses.
11 is a yellow wire used for power.
16 is a black wire used for ground.




Here is the finished install using a couple more led strips along the front.

Oh Great!!! Another excellent idea that is now officially on my 'Must Have' mod list.

I really like the idea of it coming on with the dome light.
