Dome light for bed cover?

The dome light got broken on my truck bed cover a where while back. I looked around for a good replacement but haven't had any luck. Eventually it got so bad that the bulb was too close to a wire and melted it so I removed the light. It sucks at night not being able to find stuff.

Ayone have a good source for such a light?

If you have 12 VDC in the Bed I'd used 12 volt LED rope light. I ran it under the Cover Rails. They threw away the Rope light at work after they couldn't get it to work. I plugged it in and had no problem. I bought the adapters and end pieces on-line.

Thanks for the replies. I like the rope light idea. My problem is with clearance. Most of the lights hang an inch or two and I'm afraid it will have the same fate as the last one.
