Wiring for running board lights?

I am adding led running board lights to my '13 Lariat F250. Does anyone know which wire operates the dome light and where it is?

If you have the Lariat you should be prewired for the running board boards. Look on the outside of the frame rail near the back of the cab, you should see the wire. There is one on each side. You can order the mating connector from EBAY, it is the same as the speaker connector. Do a search and you should find all of the details.

Does anyone have a picture of the plug and the location. I would like to install some kind of lights there. Also I assume this is prewired in the manner it will only come on when the doors open or something.

Edit:
Never mind here is a link I found that has all the information...

I know this old but has anyone installed some running board lights?

I ordered some 1"x3" led strip lights (Bright white) that I will mount centered under each 4 doors. Each has a 120 light spread so they should light steps and ground pretty well.

I will post pics when installed. They are backordered so it will be at least 1-2 weeks

Yes I did get them installed I will get some pics maybe tonight.

Here is a link to the lights I used. They have several different lengths from 2"-19" flexible LED strips.

I used the 3" ones. I mounted 1 under each door along with a few in the bed for cargo lights.

Sweet look forward to the pics! Cant decide if i want to do something similar to what you have, or get 1 10w or 15w for each side mounted to the frame between the two doors facing down and out under the boards.
