Wiring 3 Offroad lights

I have 3 Hella 700ff lights im installing on a rugged ridge front light bar. I want to wire the lights straight to the battery so I can turn them on whenever. The only diagrams ive found so far are to wire only 2. Since these are my first lights I really have no idea what Im doing so if anyone could help that be awsome. And I bought the 2 700ff light kit and then one separate so if you could tell me how to wire them and if theres anything else I need to get that be really appreciated.

Ground your black wires of the 3 lights. Take the pos + wire from each light, wire them together along with several ft of wire to run through the firewall inside cockpit.
Then for power you can either wire off the cigarette lighter that has the continuous current or I ran a seperate hot wire with a fuse from the battery through the firewall.
When you located where you want your switch, attach the hot (red wire) to the + post.
Then the pos + from the lights to the middle accessory post. And lastly a ground wire to the third - post. You're done.
Just did mine so it's still fresh in my mind.

Wiring the three lights with a relay

I am wiring the same three hella 700 FF lights up. Did anyone have any trouble with the relay? Did the extra power for the third light cause any issues?
