how to add rear bed lights with tailgate switch
hey guys I am starting a restore/rebuild on a 96 2 door tracker, and I want to add some lights in the rear on the left and right side where the rear seat belts are housed.

if I tied into the either front door switch that would be easy enough but I want to add a door switch so that when I open up the rear tailgate to let my dogs into the tracker at night they can see. 

I am replacing the oem dome light with an 13" led interior light and ultimately I would love to have everything tied in together, so if the driver or passenger door opens then the dome light and rear lights turn on and if the tailgate opens the dome light and rear lights come on. 

I am having a brain fart and can't seem to figure it out in my head.

Are you confued on the wiring or mounting?  the wiring I'd easy.     Dome lights almost always switch tbe ground.    you probably  just have to run a single wire to wherever you mount the switch
