    For that price you can get an entire LED bed light kit.

    I vote LED Strips under the rails, depending on how crazy you want to go with accessories it can be done pretty cheap. You need a switch, wiring to run from the back of the truck to the front, these lights LED Strip Lights, an couple of connectors for the corner THESE(i have a couple I could send you if you go this route). I did this a few weeks ago and spent quite a bit but only because I used @Iggy. 's switch panel, OTRATTW switches and installed a Blue Sea fuse panel at the same time. If you decide to tackle it and have any questions let me know, I am wiring illiterate and I figured it all out it just took a bit. Here are the results.

    It is REALLY bright in person.

    Here are the corners.

    Here is the view from the bottom(before it was wired up obviously)

    Here is the fuse panel all wired up in case you want to get crazy...

    I went with LED strips. You cant see em, and i wanted to run a big positive constant hot from my battery to my bed anyways. I also made it to where you cant see any of the wiring in the corners etc. See link below in my sig.

    Brighter, and i got a 12v socket and high amp connector for my accessories all for cheaper than that kit.

    Thank you for the pics. I think that is to much for my taste, feel like I should also put the chassis light kit under my truck with that kit. Just want something basic.

    This right here. Every camp trip i have gone on, people always at first go thats too much light, But then they start loading unloading stuff, using my tailgate to make drinks etc cus they can actually see.

    All the truck owners get envious and go, where do i buy it... feels good man.
