    Hey guys, looking to setup a LED strip with my side steps. I want to have the lights turn on when the courtesy lights turn on, so my wife can see where she's stepping in the dark. I'm sure someone has either tapped into the wire loom or connected via the fuse box. Looking for some advice on where the best spot is. Thanks!

    I mounted my step LED's on the drip edge underneath and tapped into the circuit inside the driver side rear passenger wiring bundle under the scuff plate. The wire color in my 2015 was a grayish/purplish color wire but I understand that, prior years, the wire color was brown. I used a wire tap along with an in-line fuse when I did mine.

    You are welcome. I also added a two light LED bed light kit at the same time to the same circuit since I only wanted to crawl around under the truck just once.
