    2004 Superduty, where are you guys pulling auxiliary power from, I wanted to pull a switch-able hot from under the dash to power some LED’s . I think my only option is to tap off the Cig lighter….

    Get a fuse piggy back and tie it to the fuse panel. LED's draw a very small amount of power so it will not overload anything. This way you don't have to splice into an existing wire. Get the ground from any metal frame piece under the dash.

    Get a manual for it $15 at auto zone etc. They have wire diagrams in the electrical section. It should give you always hot, hot with ignition on wire colors. The owners manual fuse box diagram should show aux/power fuse connections you can make. Make sure it's not connected to the dome light circuit,shut door it quits. If you run a line from the battery make sure you put a fuse near the battery to protect the circuit. Popped fuses not bad,burning truck are really bad!
