I'm lost. What's the secret to these things?

I got the Recon SUPERDUTY door sills for x-mas. I got them mounted, that was the easy part. Now how do I wire them up? I THINK I have to splice into the dome light wire on the (+) side, and obviously ground the (-). But where the heck is that wire? What color/color-combo is it? Does anybody know? I got all weekend to do it, then my time is up. Can anybody help me? Thanks in advance!
