You didn't mention the year of your Suburban, but you may find that there were optional switch controlled reading lights available for your Suburban that could be had as a dealer installed option. My '99 K2500 Suburban has twin reading lights for both rear seats as well as the front seats that are individually switch controlled -- I believe that they were part of the LT package.
Running boards are available from multiple sources. I have had two sets -- one on my '99 Suburban and one on my '95 K1500 Z-71 Club-Cab Pickup. I went with the factory optional running boards on the Suburban -- they are just barely adequate. On the '95 Z-71, I had Ziebart/Tidy Car premier running boards that were only modestly more expensive than the GM factory optional running boards, but much more durable and far better looking. Ziebart/Tidy Car, at least in my area, has one of the nicest selections of running boards and mud flaps with reasonably priced installation.
Good luck with your search for accessories!
