Lighting for Side Steps/Nerf Bars

Has anyone put lights under the doors to illuminate your side steps?

I was thinking of doing this, but I wanted to wire them so that when I unlocked the car, they came on. I'm not sure if I can do this. My only other thought was to wire them in with the dome lights so when the doors open they'd come on. I may tie them in to some lights in my bed if I can figure this all out.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I bought some LED's of superbrightleds.com and put them on the lip under the door jam. http://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-b...specs%2Fm3.htm They come in orange and red, but red is illegal on the side of trucks. I simply soldered them together and used a fuse tap on my headlights. I'm sure you could wire it however you want but these work great.

I'm gonna post up a pic
