Interior floor lighting?

I would like to add a little more front floor lighting to my Express and I don't want to spend a couple $100 on it. Can't I add a couple extra lights under the dash? If I can I don't know what to plug it into under the dash, I'm guessing there is somewhere to plug it in because there is an expensive Mopar kit to upgrade it.
My poor dog can't see the floor in the dark to jump in.
My dog will appreciate any help.

You can buy an LED kit from a parts store for under $30 easy and they will be plenty bright. You can tap into the door trigger wire or into the dome circuit. May have to
Run a little extra wire but it's doable without hacking the truck apart or
Crap rigging it.

If I'm not mistaken I'm sure I've read somewhere that there may be a connector just laying up in there that you can buy the rest of a harness that is meant to be for the light. It's a factory setup.

Any one have an idea what I'm looking for when I start looking?
