UPDATE THANKS TO Hazardousranger

***Some 2004 Trucks are also plug and play. Only the early model year trucks. If you remove your factory dome light and you see 2 factory wires there you are good to go, and dont need to add a power wire.

Curious as to what time frame they stopped adding the power wire?

Dont feel bad mine was Oct of 04

Im gonna go out on a limb and say if it was made in the year 2004 then you need to add wire. If it is a 04 made in 03 you dont have to.

Just finished this..wasn't too difficult. I had to take a few more screws out to have enough room to push the wire through the headliner. The dome light I picked up at the junkyard had a wire harness with 3 wires sticking off of it; I extended the green wire with the orange strip that was sticking out and connected that behind the headlight switch. I taped off the other 2 wires and just hid them.
