Don't know about him but I used these from RadioShack, already had power from battery under dash. Grounded to steering column and then the hot and load, it's easy man. Just start in it and you'll figure it out.

I prefer wiring them to the dome light so they come on when I open the door

Thanks. I got the same switch but with a red light goes with my theme of red LEDs.

Mine are wired to an all time hot and on a switch. I usually pull power from the cigarette lighter and put them on a switch so you can run them whenever you want.

I also have now replaced my factory fogs with 6" LED offroad lights

I also spliced the yellow and brown wires behind the headlight switch so the fogs come on whenever my park lights are on. They also flash with the remote now when I lock it. And I disabled the flash of the headlights so I don't toast my HID's.

Find the black with blue tracer wire under the pass side kick panel and wire them to it. Test them first as there are a couple that color in there

Just use the Blue/Red wire on the headlamp switch. Will use for factory dimmer switch to change their intensity.
