Im not sure what year you have but I can say without a doubt there isnt enough room for the slim lits on a front bumper. I had the same deal on my 4runner and you do need to leave a lil room for the swing of the hood as it goes up. As far as routing the wiring a good spot is the big grommet by the brake master cylinder where the hood release latch goes through. That's why you mount the lights behind the grill.

I don't think so. When you create a circuit a loop of electricity from the battery to your LED Light bar , if you just put a switch between the battery and the light, it will have to be rated for the full current amp draw of the light.
I purchased a pair of 6" KC HiLites, watt, to put on the new bumper. I'll post when the windshield lights are on. KC strives to supply each light model with a model-specific wiring kit, which includes all necessary wires, connectors, and switches. The directions said you could use the mounting bolts which I did , bit I would think somewhere on he body would work better? Great customer service, Amber skins was wonderful to deal with serf, would recommend to anyone.
Many switches would be able to handle that As a result, you could end up overheating the switch, melting the wires, and reducing the current that is getting to your lights, making them not as bright. Another reason you may want a relay is for the creative ways you can use electrical currents from things other than a physical switch. Read more about that below. Kind of cryptic isn't it. Well if you are just going to use our wiring harness , and switch, you don't need to know what any of this is, because it comes all pre-wired and plugged in together.
But if you want to use some sort of electrical current to activate your LED lightbar, like make them come on when you turn your high beams on, or your reverse lights on if you are adding LED backup lights , then you'll need to do a bit of rework.

Buy a Wiring Harness But if you want to use some sort of electrical current to activate your LED lightbar, like make them come on when you turn your high beams on, or your reverse lights on if you are adding LED backup lights , then you'll need to do a bit of rework. By default this switch is open, so current cannot get from the battery to your lights. Without this current, no magnetic force is created, so the 30 to 87 switch stays open, and your lights stay off. For example you could splice a wire off your high beam wire or off your backup light wire 86 - connect to a ground.
So you'd want another switch on your dash that you turn off and on. When it is off, and you put your high beams on, your LED light will still be off and vice versa. In this case, you need to wire the dash switch in between the trigger current, i. No problem, we are here to help.
Just give us a call on our toll free number at the top of the screen and we'll walk you through it. Yes, you can do this; basically, you would put your switch in between the reverse wire and 85, so that the relay would only trigger when the switch was on to make the connection to You could even do this: Get an SPDT switch, with center off, and wire the common terminal center, usually - but check it first to the relay Now, wire one of the remaining switch terminals to your power source, and the other to your reverse wire. Now, when you set the switch to the middle off position, your reverse lights operate as normal and don't trigger your extra lighting.
Always the correct part.

The hardest part of the installation on a Silverado 4WD was finding a good spot to mount the relay and switch and fishing through the firewall to the switch. This certainly not a knock on the product though. Once that was done the connections were a snap.
