Lightbulb 2012 JK Wrangler Interior Lighting

Hello, I was wondering if anyone could guide me in installing some footwell neon on my 2012 Jk wrangler sport. I want to add either a switch or make it to where the footwell neon I want to add comes on when the door opens if that is at all possible. Can anyone help me with this? Let me know what else I need. I found neon here LED BLUE 2X 12" INTERIOR STRIP FOOTWELL LIGHTS UNDER DASH BULB SMD EXTERIOR /B3 | eBay

The dome light should come on when you open the door. You can make the dome lights not come on at the headlight switch. Check that out.

Very easy to do it once found the wire in the dome light that will have power when the door opens and tap on it, just need to hide the wires to the foot wells. I've done that for 2 cars. The first one used CCFL tube, the voltage inverter has potential high voltage risk. The second one used LED strip, very straight forward, no inverter required. You might consider to get a roll of 5m so you can do other projects. I have it under my sofa too.

Where can I tap into power wire for the dome light? What is the wire color? Thanks for any suggestions?

I don't want to tap into the dome light anymore since I found the dome light switch lol. I think I want it on all the time when I'm driving now.
