Exterior Illumination...

OK I have two questions for all you heavily modified Ranger guys and gals.

I have a 2003 which is the cheap CHMSL that has no bed light. So I was thinking since I have a nice Tonneau that I'll probably never completely remove, about adding some little 12" Neons under the Tonneau rails and wiring them to a switch in the cab for bed illumination when I need it!

Anyone done anything like this before? I have auxillary backup lights installed so I know it wont be too difficult, I also thought of maybe some LED's mounted under the rail...but don't know where to find either Weatherproof NEONS or LEDs.

Second illumination question...O damnet I forgot! So I guess I just have one and a half questions about LEDs or NEONS and where to get them.

try finding a cheap neon kit from best buy, circuit city, or radio shack. since they wont be under the vehicle the cheap ones should be alright. street glow also has some neon bulbs that are at my local radio shack. all should come with wiring diagrams and arent too expensive.
