    I purchased these cool white LED strips at:
    http://www.ledunderbody.com/2pc-whit...strip-kit.aspx.
    Once I cleaned the head light bezels with alcohol I slid the LED strips (wire end) between the headlamps and the bezel, starting next to the side markers and stuck them in to place. I extended the wiring through the side marker housing (its easier if you remove the side markers). I attached the ground wires to a bolt inside the engine bay and extended the positive wires in to the cab and in to the fuse box. Using an "Add-A-Circuit" from O'Reillys I attached the positive wires in to the fuse box. There is an open port in the upper left of the fuse box which is unmarked and is an auxiliary accessories port. It is above the ECU-IG and to the left of the ACC fuses. I used a 10amp mini fuse for it (Orange color fuse in the picture). I didn't add an on/off switch as I wanted the LED lights to come on as soon as the ignition was turned on. I recently also opted to do the fog light mod and replace the side marker bulbs with white LED's as well.... Here is few pictures..
