It is a lighted pushbutton switch wired directly to my cargo light so I don't have to turn on my interior lights to use the cargo light.

Good idea. Where did you hook the switch in at? Right into the switch on the dash? If so, which wire did you use off that switch?

You have to run a separate wire from the switch all the way to the cargo light because the cargo light is only wired into the dome light from the factory.

I just ran the wire from the switch down to the drivers side doorsil, then under the doorsil to the rear of the cab, then up around the rear window to the cargo light. Then just cut the factory wire between the cargo light and the dome light and splice in the new wire from the switch.

And I just tapped into the constant power wire that feeds the headlight switch so that I don't need the key on to use the cargo light.

The switches are from Radio Shack.
