LED bed lights

Just finished up installing LED's in the bed of my truck. Makes it real nice at night hooking up the goose neck or trying to find things. The pics are not the greatest, the lights are much brighter in person but you get idea. Let me know what you guys think.

For now I am pulling power directly from the battery with a switch mounted in the bed until I can figure out how to make my upfitter switches hot when the keys off. The LED's are clusters of 8 super brights mounted on a aluminum tab which I then mounted to a strip of aluminum flat stock. I then screwed them to the slant under the bed rails. I used a total of 10 clusters five on each side.

Let me know if you can hook it up to an upfitter switch. That would be awesome! I think I am going to get the recon ones...

You can hook whatever you want to the upfitter switches. I have switch 1 for my Snow kit, switch 3 for my front strobes, & switch 4 for my rear strobes... Make it happen you'll love the convience and clean look...

I thought like the first two switches were for so much power and the last two were also. How do you get to the wires to hook them up?
