DIY Running Board Lights / Ground Lights

so my idea when i started this mod was i wanted the option for everything to light up when i unlock my truck or open the door to get out.
it took a little bit of disassembly to investigate how to do it but what i found was going to the dome light in one constant hot and two grounds on is always grounded and the other is on a relay so the light comes on under certain circumstances. this is the wire i tapped in to we'll come back to it.

so the first thing i did when i pulled my lights out of the box was chop off the plugs as i did not want to use the control box that came with it. wired all the pos+ wires together this will take a little bit of trial and error with a battery to find which wires are which. there is only one neg- wire in my set of lights. I did not use relays for this mod as the lights only draw 3 amps total thats as much as a normal relay itself wasn't worth the extra wiring.
so i wired the pos+ side of the lights directly to the pos+ power point in the fuse box under the hood the neg- side of the lights go to the center point on my double throw switches.i then wired a constant ground to one side of the switch. all the wires came in the cab through a ruber gromit in the floor on the drivers side.

this is where that dome light ground comes in to play i found the easiest way to access it was in the drivers side piller its a light blue wire for my truck it may be different depending on model and year. this ground was wired to the other side of the switch.
this way you have the option of having the lights on weather the truck is on or not. (up position) off (middle position) or the lights with come on automatically with the dome light.(down position)

and here is a basic wiring diagram to make things a little more clear

and a video of it in action

Just realized my rear tires are down to the wear bars in the center, while the fronts are looking great! I was running all 4 at 40-42psi, now im keeping the front the same and dropping the rear to 35psi..

Bilstein 5100 or 5110 for the rear... need to ask Downsouth motorsports!

Got em!! $45.00 ebay shipped.. Though I had to buy a set with a smashed lens. Depending on how the RTC 75watt I am looking into work out I might try to swap the rear housing of the Glass. The new ones are shiny!
