for the back up lights. I'm looking for the wire under the dash so that I can tie it to my strobes. I want the strobes on when I'm backing to wake up some of the idiots in parking lots

I knew I should have downloaded the manuals when I had the chance. I think Byrd might have a book
Sorry Phill, Do you have the optional trailer plug? You can test one of those wires (with a meter) too see if you have power in reverse.

Phill, what year is your truck? I have the manuals for '03, '04, and '05.

Dave , the truck is an 04.

I could tap at the back of the truck (My back up camera is spliced into that wire) but then I would have to run a wire back into the cab, currently the switch and the power supply are both in the cab and if I don't have to run another wire thru the truck,I'd prefer not too.

If you have a seven-wire harness, it's the center pin. As I recall, the wire is white/brn stripe.

Since I had my pdf manual open I also copied the rest of the wiring for the rear lights. I'm hosting all these images on photobucket so I don't use up too much space.
