Gauge illumination power source?

Does anyone know of a spot to tap into a 12v source for hooking up aftermarket gauge lighting to? I know the radio is supposedly one source but I'd rather not run wires up that way again.

Well I figured it out on my own. The 12V that powers the tail lights starts under the dash and is in the wire bundle that runs down the center under the shifter. It's the large red wire with a small orange stripe and only carries 12 volts when the parking light switch is on.
