Always use a relay when adding any type of auxiliary electrical devices. There are very simple ways of doing this, to very complicated wiring diagrams.

Check these out. Always be safe with wiring.... Saves time, money, fires, and your truck

Least complicated:

More complex, multiple switches and turn on leads:

I have 3 rolls of 3 different colors. I have yet to use any either. But I only have 1ft on each side of the dash and its real bright but I didn't use those strips for it.
