To further help you with this I need the following:

Number of lights
Number of spod channels
Locations of all lights (approximate IE one on each wheel well, 2 pillar lights, bumper lights, etc)
Desired level of control (IE I want each one controllable individually or all on one switch or whatever's in between)
What spod version you have.

I'll gladly whip up an electrical drawing and recommend terminal blocks and similar for you with this information :)

12 individual lights?

SPOD or SPOD SE? There's an electrical difference.

Okay, basically you are going to want to know the amperage of each individual light. Basically, use terminal blocks if you can, connect all of the negatives of the lights together at the most common point of the jeep (ie the location closest to the middle of all of the lights) and join them there. Do the same thing with the positives. Then run one large wire from each, wire size will depend on the total amperage of the lights (if each light is 1 amp then you need wire rated for 12v 12a, if each is 2a then you need 12v 24a, etc, etc)

Terminal blocks are things like this: http://www.texasindustrialelectric.com/images/JB7_C_sm.gif

If the total amperage of the lights exceeds the rated amperage of the channel on the SPOD (15a or 30a depending on the fuse provided) you will need to use a relay from the battery and control the relay with the spod. All of that wiring would never leave your hood.

Does that help?
