Dimmer wire color?

Could someone please provide me the wire color and tracer color of the dimmer wire in the dash of a 2016 JK? I'm wanting to hook my OTRATTW switches into the dimmer wire so I can control the brightness of the switch LED lights. Am I making the correct assumption that the same color/tracer wire runs throughout the schematic for all the connectors that provide dimmer power? Thanks!

I tapped into the Orange/Gray wire on the footwell light (up under the dash on either driver or passenger side).

I also found a YouTube video where a guy tapped into the same wire, but behind the power window switches.

Thanks! I think I'll pop that power window switch out again and find that orange/gray wire. Thanks again.
