In Cab Reverse Trigger Wire

Any body know where I can pick up a 12v source that come on with reverse, in the cab on a2003 ranger? trying to avoid running more wire then necessary to go all the way back to the tail lights.

Thanks

-Michael

Look in the bundle of wires that drops down from near the center of the dash to run under the carpet on the left side of transmission tunnel. The black/pink in that bundle is the switched hot to the reverse lights.
