im wanting to run a hot to the back of my truck to power some leds, well ive heard of people tapping into the cigarette lighter and running from there to the back, which wire behind the dash is it and can i easily get to the back of the lighters to get to the wire? or how do i remove the cigarette lighter out to get to the wires? it easy to remove?
