Cab Clearance Light Plug

Hey Guys. I went down to the Local Line-X shop and had them install recon cab lights on my F250. When I was installing the upfitter switches today, I noticed that they tapped the parking light signal wire (28ga by the looks of it) that comes out of the back of the factory headlight switch. I know the recons are LED but I'm not comfortable pulling power out of a signal wire for them.

Does anyone know where the factory cab light plug is on a 2013 F250 Lariat? (picture or diagram would be great) I've done a lot of searching and cant find anything on the 6.7L model year trucks. Lots on the 7.3, 6.0, and 6.4.

Thanks!

Should be in the passenger side kick panel. If its not there then its the driver side. I'm pretty sure it's passenger though. It should be a plug with only 2 wires going to it. Test it to be sure though before. I have installed a few sets, I'm doing a 6.4 this coming weekend.

Thanks dodge_dbag! I recognize that big harness plug to the left so I know right were to look now. I think its going to be really hard to get to so I may end up trying to tap into the harness behind the kick plate and grab on of the wires that runs to the rear of the truck for the taillights or to the mirror clearance lights.

I found a yellow wire with a green stripe in the harness that runs behind the driver side kick plate that responds the same as the parking light. I tapped into that to run the cab lights and now they are a lot brighter! I can't believe that guy at the shop tapped into a signal wire behind the light switch. I guess he is just used to older trucks where the switches used to carry power. Thanks for your help again.
