Wire for backup lights????

I just got through building a custom rear bumper for my truck. Ill post pics once the line-x is on it. I am putting lights in it also and was wondering where the wire is located that supplies power to the stock backup lights so I can make them turn on automatically.

Thanks

Sry hadn't got the time to do that!! I probably hadnt posted her in 3 months I've been so busy.
I still say just go have them chromed. I kinda think the pics lie alittle.

BTW I think i accidentally put thin in the wrong forum should probably be in general ford section

I couldn't find one close to the cab...just to darned lazy to look. So I tapped the backup light in the 7-pin plug as the trigger and used the battery charging wire for the power. I tucked the relay behind the drivers side tail light. Plenty of room. Just have to string wire from the cab switch back.
