some help please

ok so i wanna add some lights to my grille area and wanted to know is there anyway to wire the lights and hook them up to my parking/headlight switch to turn them on instead of having to run the wire through the firewall?

You can wire them to your parking lights. That would be the easiest way to go.

If it were me, I would want a switch. Its pretty easy to run a wire for this through the firewall.

Re: some help please

i was just searching around im thinking about putting a remote controlled switch in so all i gotta do is hit the button and run no wires just to the control box what is your opinion on that?

Ive not used a remote controlled switch. If its reliable, then go for it! Just use the parking light wires for power and it should be easy then.
