Think I will add a couple of spare lines up to that area just in case I decide to add the running lights as you have. Much appreciate your quick responses. THANKS Oldqtip (was going to sign off as OQT but that may be taken the wrong way. [:-)
Don't try to grab power from anything in the wiring harness I described. It sounds like most most if not all your wires will be for the air bags!!! Don't want one of those puppies going off on you!!
If you ever do the cab lights, let me know. There are some really good threads on here about them, but i could share the little things I learned.
Take care, Carl.
