I like this idea. Wire the rope lights up to the interior lights then put some brighter lights on a switch to really light it up.

Put some lights on a retractable pole of some kind maybe 2 on each side 2 in front 2 in back. Then when they are down you have bed lighting. Put them up you have spot lighting surrounding your truck. Might be good for camping or tailgaiting or something.

Thats not a bad idea. I might just do that and have them removeable as well.
