Thumbs up Help for wiring new lights

SOOOOOO at the 4wd parts 50th birthday sale, I went in to buy a new Bestop for my jeep. Not only did i come away with a new top but I also won a set of Pro Comp 100 watt 6" Round Competition Driving Lights in the raffle. Yay for I just need a little bit of help with the wiring. These lights didnt come with anything other than the light and a couple of wires coming off of them. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to wire these up or if you have a video that shows how to wire them and what i would need to complete this task. Cant wait to get this done and show off my work on here.

Those lights draw enough current (amps) that they need a relay so their wiring and switch doesn't get too hot. Get a driving light wiring kit from 4WP or other 4x4 shop where the kit will come pre-wired with the required relay, switch, and all wires that will make getting the lights working properly easy. All you have to do is connect the pre-wired wiring harness to the battery and lights and you're basically done.
