12 volts at back of truck??

I need a constant 12 volt wire at the back bumper, is there a constant 12 volt wire in the back or should I just run one from the front of the truck. It's just for some led bed lights, will be low amp pull.
Could of swore I saw a post on this before but whatever I search for I can't find anything.
Thanks.

I don't think there is. I recall reading something and they ended up running a wire from the battery to the rear.

Is it hot with the ignition off?

The OP asked for constant so I assumed he's needing hot 24/7.

you will need to run from the battery.

Thanks for the responses, will post a picture tonight when it gets dark. My son was gracious enough to crawl under the truck to run the wire so that was nice.

Sorry, couldn't get a picture, just could not get it to work with the light generated. I mounted 8 led's along the top of the bed to light up the bed at night, worked as planned, mounted a push button switch to activate them, thanks for the help.

Works out nice, especially with tonneau cover on, no more flashlight to dig your stuff out.
