If you're thinking of mounting them on the windshield, make sure you go with driving or long-distance lights; fogs will just throw glare on your hood, and should be used on bumper mounts.
As far as wiring them in, any decent lights should come with a harness, relay and switch. Just pull the appropriate plug on your firewall, fish the switch wires through with a coathanger, hook the harness up to the battery and ground it, and you should be good to go.
Some peeps cut off the switch that comes with the lights, and install a series of switches in the A-pillar or dash. I use an sPOD, which mounts the switches at the top of my windshield. Some examples:
The switches that came w/my sPOD (which makes hooking up aux electricals very easy...good, cuz I'm an electrical retard.)
I like to wrap any exposed wire in the engine bay with heat-resistant conduit, then zip-tie it to existing wiring, to keep everything clean and protected.
On this Jeep, I initially had KC SlimLites...they were great, light-wise, but I didn't like the way they blocked my vision when I was turning left across traffic. So I switched to the Rigid Duallys, which are much smaller, brighter, and have very little current draw (but cost a lot more).

I ran them on my last jeep. The only problem I had was after about a year or so the clear coat started peeling off the lights.
I have a set of the RR HIDs mounted on those windshield brackets (the black ones with the red outer ring). I was concerned that they might not fit with those brackets, but no problem. Easy install and good light output. More expensive than those but worth it in my opinion.
RR uses garbage switches. But the lights I bought are working fine. They do seem to want to come loose every now and then.
