Rob, nice video as usual. I have the bed lighting in my truck, along with the OEM tonneau cover. I can tell you the bed LED lightning is awesome. I'll go to open my tailgate at night and have full visibility into the bed. Great option to have.
If I'm not mistaken, the bed lights are activated by the remote lock or door lock. I love them as well, very handy if you have any type of bed cover. It would be nice if the tailgate was the switch, I have had a few occasions where they didn't come on because the truck was already unlocked. But a simple press of the unlock button on the fob gets them on.
I have a button where my lights turn on for the bed lighting. I think it is a great feature. You can even turn it on while driving in case you are carrying anything and want to take a quick peek to make sure it is still in there.
