    Welcome to the forum. I use LED motion lights in my bed under the tonneau. Cheap and works well.

    Are these wired in Bogunn, or are they battery operated?

    Mounted a couple of these, on each side. These are from Harbor Freight. Work great for my purpose plus they were cheap, fast and easy..... 20181103_113151.jpg

    I have a set of these a buddy gave me off his 2016 ram. I have the plugs but no wiring.. Idk if I wanna drill a hole in my bed for a Dodge part. Lol but they are bright. Maybe I'll use them for something else Screenshot_20181103-104800.jpeg

    I installed these. It took a couple hours to run all the line to the battery.

    This is my picture and it almost looks professional. Really turned out good and a perfect lighting amount for a dark bed. 20180916_205511.jpeg

    Here’s the lights I used. It came in a 3 pack for $13.99.
    My only recommendation is getting some good 3M auto adhesive tape to keep around for stuff like this. The adhesive that comes with isn’t the greatest. After adding the 3M tape they haven’t moved and batteries are still good after almost 4 months.

    I think I like a long row of lights better with a battery-powered motion detector. Could you post a photo?
