Cree LED light bar hook up please help!!

Guys,
Just bought an eBay 20"LED light bar, pretty cool actually, nicely packaged and all but does not have entire wiring. I've been searching all the posts and getting so many direction. In general I need a relay, inline fuse and a switch. But I am not comfortable buying all separate and connect together.
May be you guys can educate me!!!
It's a brand new connection and I don't have any switch are anything installed.
What do I need? Should I buy a wiring kit? If so any suggestions on brand and price would help.
Or any other options?
I am not planning on adding any additional lights anytime soon.

Please help!
Thanks

KC Lights make a wiring kit for there lights and i'm sure they will work on others too.

I picked it up an inspired engineering harness kit for $15.00 and installed the light bar.

Hey, what is the spacing on the mounts for this light? I'm trying to find a light bar like this to mount on the tabs of my JCR Vanguard and these look like they might be close.

The light bar came with an adjustable clamps that can be slid across the body ( it actually slides along the cooling fins at the back of the light bar) as well as the angle. You can find so many on ebay with this set up but dont go for something like 'L' bracket set up at the end of the light bar then you are stuck.

Joe,

I just bought the same light. How many amps was your fuse rated at? If my math is correct 126 watts / 12 volts is 10.5 amps. Did you use a 15amp fuse?

Thanks Joe, I just check out their site. I have 15's and 30's available. I think that I'll start with the 15, and bump it up if needed.
