New Twist on Recon LED door sills

Last night I installed my smoked LED tail Lights, 3rd brake light, and mirror markers on my Truck. I also had some other lighted door sills. I decided I didn't want to just put them where everyone else does. So I decided that I would put them on my power steps.

I had to take the lights apart and drill a new hole so the wires would exit through the back of the lights. I then drilled holes into my powersteps and fished the lines through the inside of them and I then ran the wires in loom up behind the brackets that hold the steps on and wired them into my Dome lights so they come on when you open the door and the steps drop down.

Truck is a little dirty but here are some pictures.

you have to go from the mirror side of the houseing and look behind the mirror with a light, and you will see 3 clips that you push "down and in i believe", then you have to pull on the frontside of the houseing and it will come with some encouragement. It really helps to have 2 people.

I wish I could see the pictures. Maybe I have a setting that is wrong, or some other problem. Would anyone have an idea?
