When I do my suicide doors I'm putting l e d's under the door jams for curtesy lights so you can see where your stepping at night.

all i did was just get a small License plate bulb socket for a trailer and mounted one on each side. Neon lights and LEDs look terrible IMHO

Mine are tapped into the factory fog switch so when I turn my headlights on the LED's under the dash come on. My air vents were too distracting and the blue LED dome just didn't make enough light at night.

No u don't. You do need to put a fuse in it tho. Just a simple glass fuse

When you tap into your dimmer switch pink/black cable do the LED strips only turn on when you turn the switch all the way to turn on the interior lights or only when the headlights are on? Or when? Like in the ACC position? Sorry i'm a rookie at this!

they come on when you slide the dimmer all the way up and it clicks, when the dome light comes on. if that switch is activated, the dome light and these leds will come on weather the trucks running/headlights are on or not.
