    Okay, your EVTM is calling it Connector 202.
    In my truck BK/PK and BK/LB are jumpered on the 'load' side of that connector, right down by the seatbelt mechanism.
    A single wire goes up inside the B-pillar to the light.

    This is what you get with a "Custom" truck.

    How does that harness connect to the lights?

    Interesting. Mine has three wires, as shown below. LG/Y is always hot and is used for the map lights. BK/PK is switched by the headlight switch and serves the cargo light and the dome light. And BK/LB is switched by the door switches and serves the dome light only.

    I see that I have only one wire coming up from the C208 plug at the base of my B pillar.
    Still trying to figure this all out.

    I don't have a map light, and the last time I saw any of that wiring I had the ceiling out.
    I wasn't really concerned with any wires.

    I have the harness that connects to the standard cab harness, and I think there is constant power in it as the map lights work at any time. Don't they?

    Thank you for the Rep's Gary!

    I'm still trying to sort out what I'm going to do about my cargo lights.
    I think I need a harness from the bottom of the B pillar, or find another source of constant power.
    I looked at a 'ought era dome/map light, but all the brass is imbedded in the moulded plastic and it has a three pin connector. (like a 5mm OC header)

    Thanks Gary!
    I think the cab ceiling holes and everything are in the same place.
    Just want to check, and make sure I'm not better off with an OBS or Taurus interior light.
    I;ve never done anything to my interior except replace the headliner and add a radio.

    Gary, if you have time can you send me picture of what a dome/map light from a bullnose truck looks like (front and back)
    I'm still trying to figure out a simple way to control my cargo lights.

    Thanks for the reps. But, it wasn't that hard once I got the true dimensions.
