|One thing on the To-Do List is adding Bed lights to my Steppie Bed.
My plans are for four lights too mounted close to the Tailgate and two in the middle; I have a bed box so four should be good but might add one or two in the Bed Box too !
Switch will be a single pole double throw with center off, wire for manual and auto-tailgate-on, with an Off position; mounted using an Aircraft Switch cover... down will be the auto mode so if you flip the cover down it will go to that setting.
Both auto and manual switching will have a flashing RED LED on the Dash somewhere, maybe the same one.
Here is what I was thinking for the lighting... the units may change but I'm thinking four of these will put out enough light.
Yes these are LED License Plate Light, waterproof, easy two screw mounting.
The Tailgate Switch
Wiring should be straight forward a single wire with all of the extras before the switch circuit.
AND thanks to JAMMAN I will be adding a Door Switch in the Tailgate area for the Auto mode.
The dash switch

I'm afraid I won't be back to this modification for a while, it is high on the list of To-Do's, just I'm working on another !
Any thoughts, ideas, add links for lighting and switch, thanks !
