Default Truck Bed LED Lights. Anyone have them?

I picked up a catalog from a local store (Crutchman) and they have these LED lights that go under the rails inside the truck bed. They are designed to go under a tonneau cover which I plan on getting in the future anyway. But does anyone have these in there beds? I would like to see some pictures and here some opionions on them with OR without a tonneau cover. It would be cool to have them light up when you unlock the truck/remote start/turn it off at night along with the headlights and the other lights that stay on for a minute or so. I can see it coming in handy since the light that shines down into the bed from the 3rd brake light location isn't all that bright..

I saw that one but no offense to that person, I do not like how the lights only light up the sides of the bed. The LED lights I am talking about light up the entire bed, kind of like a trunk light in a car. I am looking for someone who got the entire bed to light up evenly, preferably with pure white LEDs.

The Dodge kit would be the way to go IMO as it ties into the dome lights, really handy when you hit unlock on the fob and all the approach lights go on. I will dig up the install instructions for the dodge kit again as it shows how to tie in their kit to the wiring harness.

Here is the the link for the thread with the install instructions for the Dodge bed lights.

We I had just begun planning a similar mod, in fact just ordered a 10 pack of LEDs.

http://www.cyron.com/p-58-cv610-cyro...pack-bulk.aspx

After reading the other thoughts and ideas, I am thinking cargo light, plus a tailgate switch, plus a tailgate override switch. Wire it similarly to dodge instructions, but but that into a relay with diode inline, access a hot at the trailer wiring (similar to the 12V Rambox accessory outlet), then install a plunger style switch on the tailgate (similar to what the Ramboxes have in them), add a override switch (again similar to what is in the Ramboxes), add another diode to that circuit as well. So the relay can be triggered by the cargo light circuit, or everytime you open the tailgate, but if you are going to drive with the tailgate down you can override the tailgate switch. Diodes make sure you won't backfeed anything else.

What you guys think? Any oversights? I will work on it this week and of course once I get it done I will post it for you all to admire.
