Default Rear Interior Light Swap

First of many newbie questions. Before I go crazy on the interior lighting I want to do a simple change to rear interior light on an 03 quad cab.
Unless I am being stupid, I cannot switch the rear interior light on/off without switching front map lights on.
I want to change out rear interior light for a switchable one, has anyone done this? I have 3 kids and they often want rear light on, but only way to switch it is with the front light cluster dial - then the front maps come on as well.
Very electrically/mechanical minded, just wondered if there is a drop-in light.
Thanks

have you considered some sort of battery powered portable lights? something along the lines of the "tap lights"

This might solve you problem for you, without getting all drastic.

Otherwise I'd suggest doing a search at your favorite accessories store for a dome light or something similar and go from there

good luck
