That sounds like a bad idea because they can kill the battery if he forgets to turn them off.
First, if they are "Flex" (Ford Flex) ambient lighting LEDs than your going to require the module that controls them, and you need to build your own medium-speed CAN system. This is pretty involved.
If "Flex" means something else and NOT Ford Flex, I'd have to see what the parts consist of. If it is a simple LED strip basically "ready for 12-15V" than you should connect the switch to something that is hot only when the key is on, so you don't leave them on and kill your batter. I would connect to the backside of a fused circuit as well so it is protected from the factory fuse. LEDs will also need ground (obviously) and have to be physically mounted. Make sure they are mounted on something that doesn't get too hot because heat kills LEDs. Make sure you have no opportunities for your circuit to short out.
