Very good idea! I just got done front footwell lighting. One question about the back, do you think it will work as well with the cloth seats? Adhering it to the seats?

yeah, any time you run wire, really for anything, you wanna leave extra, not only to move things around but also if a connector goes bad later on and you have to cut and install another. oh well, we live and learn post pics when you can.

Done with mine..will post pics later. I did use the velcroe way, however the velcroe kept falling off from the cloth under the seat, so what I did is took the one piece of velcroe that was going to stay attatched to the seat and staple gunned it to the seat. Works great. Doesn't do any damage to the seat underneath cause it's just cloth and foam that you can't see. No more problems with it falling off and I can still un velcroe it if something goes wrong with the light. Looks awesome.

To wire mine I just ran power wire from front fuse box through firewall and then to a switch. I wanted mine on a switch more than having them come on when the door is open. I zipptied my switch under the drivers side dash and I Also velcroed and zipptied the lights under the front dash. The reason I ran the power wire I'm from the fuse box is because I also have led lights in the fenderwells that are controlled wirelessly or from the control box in the cab. Plus now I have a good power wire on the inside that I can always tap off of if I need to.

I bought those floormatts off of eBay. They weren't cheap though. They are real diamond plate, but they do look awesome. Hope that answered the questions. Thanks for the compliments. I was actually surprised on how easy it was to wire it all up.
