Auxilary Lights

I have 2 sets of auxilary driving lights( windsheild lights and bumper lights). Both sets of lights are wired up to a fuse and and a external switch. Its a pain to turn the lights on and off for each time you turn the high beams off and on so i was wondering if i could wire the bumper lights to the low beams and the windsheild lights to the high beams. Also i was wondering if i could still hook the sets of lights to a switch. (Bumper lights_switch 1-> low beams__windsheild lights_switch 2-> high beams)

Light switch 1-> off= wired to low beams_on= lights are one. Light switch 2-> off= wired to high beams_on= lights are on

Might be a little confusing but if anybody has any suggestions on how i could do this that would be great.

I beleive you can hook two power sources up to the same relay. have the power from your switch and the power from your high beams / low beams connect to the switch side of the relay.

How about wiring the bumper lights up so that when you hit the high beams, the bumper lights come on and increasing your visibility? That's low a lot of lighting systems on modern cars work nowadays, where there is a separate light for the highbeams that comes on when you flip on the highs. Then just wire up the windshield lights with a switch for offroad use.
