I'm planning on doing the same thing you are. I'm went to www.trdsparks.com and looked at the installation instructions they had listed for the oem LED lights. I think I'm going to tap into the same wire they use for those lights and run a wire from that to back behind that panel located at the bottom center of the dash. There I'm going to create a junction point. I'm just going to put eyelets on all of the wires and hold them together with a nut and bolt. Then I'll wrap it with electrical tape. I'll just attach a sheet metal screw to the body for a ground if I can't find a bolt already in place that will work. Doing it this way means that the lights I'm adding will be wired to the headlight switch. If I start to blow fuses I'll wire in a relay. I was thinking of maybe wiring in the lights to turn on when the doors open but then I'd want them to turn on with the headlights as well. I could do this using a relay, just haven't decided yet.
I found a better deal on neon lights off of ebay than I found in the stores.

As far as cutting the end off of the lights go for it just make sure before you do that you know which wire is + and which is -. If you can't tell by looking at the wires pull the plug apart the wire going to the center is +.

^^^THats where I have mine ran to. I have one main power wire from the battery and it goes to a terminal plate that has several 'slots' or spaces to hook up accessory wires. I then ran an inline off each accessory that I have hooked up (two extra power sockets, inside LEDs, outside LEDs). I'll try to post a pick of what I'm talking about.

Shortys50, I can't really help you out because I don't know what kind of lights you are going to run. I have LEDs but I know my brother in law has NEONS and he has to run transformers and relays ( I don't know why).
