Does anyone know or has anyone looked into adding the Factory Under Rail LED lighting?    I mean is it something that I could add to my truck since I didn't get that option from the factory?   I wouldn't think it would be too difficult since I have the cargo lamp button on my dash.  I would think it would just plug into the fusebox somewhere and also tie into that switch.

 

Any thoughts?

I did not confirm but a salesman told me the wiring is in the bed even if the light is not there.  Like I said a salesman said this so take it with a small grain of salt but worth checking into.  If it is already there im sure you could buy the lights and add it.

I'd like to see a wiring diagram or service manual to see exactly where it plugs in and how it runs.

After searching the net, I'm not really coming up with anything.  This seems to be the most active forum so far regarding the 2014 trucks.  Some of the other GM truck forums don't even have a K2XX section yet.

i didnt even realize what a good option it was at the time when i orderd, but i didnt get the lights installed

 

I ended up buying the the plasmaglow led lights off amazon 

 

placed them under bed rails 

 

ran the wiring through the cab vents ( easy ) and up into the third brake light i tapped into the left and right wires of the white bulbs and spliced the ground together and tapped into the ground wire of the third brake light. 

 

now when i press the button for the cargo light on the dash the lights come on!

 

Before all this I asked my dealer to, and they said "well its still a new truck we really dont know yet ......" 

 

so it only took me like an hour and it was alot cheaper 

pic below  

OH!! and as for the wiring already being there for the lights ... did not see a single thing : ( 

unless its somewhere inside the truck behind the back panels

Looks great shotmark! At least this is an option if we find out the factory option isn't available. I hope that it is though. Thanks for sharing what you have found. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk.

It will be offered as GM PN# 23145347, listing @ $135.00 + tax.

 

GM is working on getting these kits out there, but you can not order one as of yet.....

135 for the kit, make sure you get it on the truck when you buy it, it's only a 60 option that way.

I agree with your reasoning, but is only viable if you build to order or just happen to find the exact one you want.

Understandable, I know that it wont work for everyone, more just in shock that the option is only $60 but they are charging more than double for a kit to do it yourself, seems pretty jacked up to me.  Looks like you have a good setup in your truck for this mod.
