January 31, 2011I was up at walmart the other day and came across some lights I just couldnt pass up. They are made by Rally, there a 6in 100 watt halogen, I got em for $6 a piece. They didnt come with a wiring kit or anything. When it comes to wiring I aint the best with it so Im hoping for some help. Can anybody sugest a wiring kit from somewhere that I could use for these? In the instructions it says to wire them through the high or low beams and Im not wanting to do that, I was just wanting to put a switch inside the cab and turn them on and off whenever I want.

January 31, 2011Pretty simple. You can tie in to an existing 12 volt source, just make sure it is fused. From the fuse to an on/off switch of your choice and then to the lights. If the lights have 2 wires, one goes to the wire from the switch and the other goes to ground. Green or black to ground and the red one to the power.

January 31, 2011This is a really nice diagram that lays it out as simple as possible. good post.

January 31, 2011Guilty - What gauge wiring should I use and Im guessing that is an inline fuse? Also for that relay what kind should I get and where would I get one and then where at should I hook up the one side of the switch in the fuse box?

1) I`d say to use 12 or 14g wiring
2) The fuse holder is an "in-line fuse" you could use the glass fuse or a blade
