Ugh...

I'm installing some off road lights, and the wiring harness calls for me to hook up a wire with the current headlight +, how exactly should I go about doing so?

Do you want the off road lights to come on when you turn your headlights on? If you want the off road lights to come on via a toggle switch, then I would recommend that you find a suitable place to mount your toggle switch. I have mounted 2 toggle switches on either side of the steering column. The two panels are easy to remove, and you can inscribe the cut out with the metal part of your switch that is supposed to mount under your dash. I do not like anything hanging under the dash, therefore I cut out two rectangular holes that match the diameter of the switch, and ran my hot wires from the battery through the firewall, and to the switch. It is a very clean way of mounting toggle switches. I hope that I have helped you, and not confused you further.

I got everything hooked up, and a switch mounted, but when I went to try the lights, they wouldn't turn on. I have all the wires connected or ground, but the one that needs to be connected to the "parking/headlight +, or switched power wire."

if you wired in a switch you really just need to go to a positive wire and make sure its not a wire that you will blow a fuse. if you wire it to the head lights and have the switch on the same wire you dont have to worry about them being on with the headlights just unhook the battery and splice it in.

I think the instructions intend you to hook up to the low beam postive. It's a legal issue with having offroad/fog lights on with the high beams. If you run it to the low beam hot when you turn on your high beams they will turn off. Are these actual offroad lights or fog lights?
