Runningboard Lights

Maybe this is just a crazy brain fart, but I wondered if any of you guys had ever mounted LED lights up under the doors for the runningboards. I know you can get 5 foot strips of white LEDs and I thought it'd be nice to tie them into the dome lights so they come on when the door opens. Any thoughts or ideas?

I installed the RECON smoked cab clearance lights, smoked sidemarker lights, 3 of the smoked running lights that go under the tailgate,(I've got them hooked up so the left and left center light are for the left turn, same for the right and all light up for the brakes.) I also installed a 62" and 48" Big Rig lights on the sides. Here's a couple of pics. I need to get some night shots to show the lights better. The truck is getting tons of looks now!!!!!
