Those are nice lights but check your state laws about windsheld lights. In WV you will not pass inspection if you have any aftermarket lights above your driving headlights.

It will come with instructions on how to wire it and it does come with a switch. A lot of people run the wires through the door to the dash, but I ran the wires from the engine compartment through the firewall into the dash. Takes a lot of patience and time but looks clean and worth the extra time. For the switch I drilled a hole on the right side of the steering wheel and mounted to switch there.

Firewall wiring pass through

It will come with instructions on how to wire it and it does come with a switch. A lot of people run the wires through the door to the dash, but I ran the wires from the engine compartment through the firewall into the dash. Takes a lot of patience and time but looks clean and worth the extra time. For the switch I drilled a hole on the right side of the steering wheel and mounted to switch there.
I have heard (somewhere) that there is a factory wire way through the firewall with a rubber grommet/seal just for this purpose - did you use this or drill one yourself? If the factory option, can you tell me where it is? I have looked around and not found any obvious way through yet.
Thanks.

If you haven't ordered them yet, QTec has a set of 3" lights that put out 100W. The kit includes the wiring, switch, and mounts for mounting next to the hood latches. I have them on and am really happy with them. As has been mentioned, they also pass inspection in VA (just had it inspected) since they don't rise above the hood line and are switchable.

Are those wireless control? If not, how did you run the wires for the switch (thru the fire wall)?

Sorry for the late reply, but I ran it through the firewall where all the main wires run right in front of the driver side above the pedals. I had to cut the wires and then splice them back together when I got them through.
