I ran the light power cord to the cluster fuse so when the cluster lights up (head lights on the gauges light up). Im just grounded it to a bolt by the pedals and tightening it down. Im gonna drill a bigger hole in the chassis to fit all the componets through and ill get you all pictures soon.

Where did you run you gauge light power supply to? We had it installed on the cluster, head lights, and the guages wouldn't power down and I don't want to burn off the battery. Upfitter switches would be awsome but we can't get to the back of those dam things. This is an 08 Lariat edition for more refernce.
