Just run a lead from the battery (properly fused, of course).

Like Mike said...run your on wire.
I had to make an adapter for my be extender to fit in the 11. Love it! The only picture I have is in my 04. Reason for the adapter is the RetraxPro has a little wider bed rail.
My plan is to use a couple of "Line of Fire" light bars under the bed rails. I have a couple of sets that have 1 or 2 LED's out, but it wont make any difference under the rails.
An illuminated switch on the bed wall at the back and it will be done.

There should be a constant 12v wire in the 7 pin trailer wiring you could tap off of.

Those look a lot like what I've used for years...Owllighting.com they have what they call cluster lights, similar to the one you posted and "step" lights that are 4 LEDs in line.
