Not sure which specific wire it is, but prolly the easiest place would be to tap the wire that runs to your dimmer switch, the last click that turns on your dome lights. May also be easy to tap into your cargo light depending on where it comes down. (havn't tore an interior apart on a super duty yet)

Well i was trying to find a wire that wasnt in the door so i didnt have to tear into it. I ended up finding a wire behind the drivers side kick panel that is blue with a black runner and that has power with the doors open and shuts off when you close the door

I mounted led lights on the bottoms of my doors. I tapped into the little lights that are already on the door panel.
Great mod, you'll be happy you did it every time it's dark
