Recon Cab Light Installation

When installing recon cab lights on a 2001 ford f250 that has not had cab lights before, will i have to tap into another wire or will they just be plug and play?

there is supposedly a plug for the clearance lights under the passenger side kick panel. although some people are having difficulties determining which plug (apparently there are a few)

you can buy the plug and play harness from ford, but I'd just tap into the wire on your passenger side kicker panel. Mine had 2 wires going into it with nothing plugged into it. I will try and take a picture of mine tomorrow. You can also use a volt meter to find which wire. You will also have a ground wire that I just used the screw for the visor hook. Some drill it into the cross price
