    i bought a bed light kit from auto zone. u can wire the switch wherever u want but i ran mine in the corner of the bed. this is with a tonneau but will work with a camper just as well, unless you're looking for overhead lighting

    Front dome light added,light reminder added,door chime mod, added 2nd gen 4runner headrests,grey wire mod, 2lo mod, more later.
    If you wire in bed lights,suggestion wire into your taillight circuit that way you can't forget and leave your bed lights on and get a surprise with a dead battery.There is a way to get wiring from behind your taillight through the box to wire up your lights. My 02 taco had a canopy on it sometime before I bought it and wiring was still there. I would also add another in line fuse just to be on the safe side.
