No factory light, that's why I am making my own.

2011Ram maybe you should check and see how much the dealer charges for the light over at the parts dept. That way the lights come on when you pop the hood. It can't be more than say $20. It will give you a clean look and a good mercury switch. You could always check junkyards or egay since I'll bet the 09, & 10 are the same.

I think it's about $80. Not sure if that comes with a harness either. I wonder if the same as one for the Jeep. Part #: 82210853AC ??

Like this you mean? do it it looks great. To the OP the underhood light looks great thansk for the write up I might have to try something along these lines. Hope you don't mind me following your lead!

Hey man don't let that stop you. A good idea is a good idea. A lot of people who have seen it think it looks great and say they are going to try something like it so if you like it go for it! After all I'm going to steal the OPs idea lol

Man that looks wicked! I love that mod and I think I will have to do something like that as well! Great install as well, looks very clean

If you want to do the lights in the bed there are kits out there with everything you need for install

The bed lights are probably next on my list as well. I'm going to splice them into my dome light circuit so they come on with the keyless entry as well. I took some time to make some sheet metal brackets over the holidays but didn't get the time to install them. I want to make sure to get a better angle so the whole bed width gets light and not just the outside edges.
