Newbie wiring help

Hello all

Just picked up my 2013 rubi unlimited. My first jeep. I am looking to install KC slimline fog and long range lights. Bought them from quadractec so the help e get all I need. How do I wire so when I turn off engine I don't drain battery even when forget to turn off switch. Forgive my ignorance

You'll need to wire in a relay that utilizes the power off of something that turns off with the jeep, such as the cigarette lighter. When the car is on it closes the relay and connects the power to the battery then you wire it just like the diagram
