Power under dash

I am looking for power underneath the dash to tap into. Dosent matter if battery power, key power. All i want to do is wire in the plug for my satellite radio. My truck is an 09 f550 v10. Thanks in advance.

Just use a wire tap and put it in the switched +12v for the radio, that's what I did.

I just found this photo I had posted elsewhere:

Click the image to open in full size.
If you look toward the lower left corner of that photo, you can see a wire that is light blue with a pink trace on it. That wire is also a switched +12v source. I have it powering my aftermarket gauges. It's normally tucked neatly away in a small bundle of wires with a piece of tape wrapped around them labeled "Customer Access Wiring" or something to that effect. There should be a red, white, and black solid colored wires along with the blue/pink one.
The wire I'm referring to is just to the left of the red circle in this photo.

Yeah that would be great they should have a panel with ignition, bat and light power access in that panel. Also allow anyone with a little sence to be able to hook it up.Thanks superduty4x4 for the picture, i will go try that out today..
They made a good thing with the 4 upfitter switches and the pass through wires. Those are both important for the aftermarket, now they need a little more access.
