LED running board light

So I just got the led strips I needed and they should be here in the next 3 weeks. I plan on putting them under the doors on both sides so when the door opens it operates with the dome lights and then subsequently goes out when all the doors are closed. So my only problem is I don't know where to tie into for power/ the signal for the dome lights. Does any one know if it is a wire I would have to tap into or better yet a fuse that way I can just use an add a circuit. Any one done this before or something like it. I have a 2004 F-250 crew cab. I will post pictures of how I do it and the process once I get them here but was just hoping to have everything ready to go before I started.

Re: LED running board light

well for anyone who looked at this thread and was hoping to get something productive, the time has come. I finally finished by project and it turned out perfectly!! The lights operate just as expected with the dome light and are perfect. If anyone else is interested in doing something like this let me know via PM and i will show you how i did it. Ill try and post pics later but for now they are not loading.

$40 and 2 hours later here she is! They all operate with the dome lights and with the doors when the key is in the on position (again like the dome light operation).
