There's a guy over on R-F that has those headlights wired up and working. Also one on RPS, You might could hunt them down and ask them how it works.

I bought from the same seller. There were no instructions. But it is pretty straight forward. Just installed mine last week. Although I didn't opt for the L.E.D.s.. The trick to the Halos is to check there bullet connectors for proper crimp. I had 2 connectors that were crimped onto insulation. There is a power wire ran straight from battery to relay and there is a power wire that is switched by ignition to the push button switch provided. The direct current from battery to Halos is through a 30 Amp rated relay(you don not want to send 30 Amps through a switch). Then there is another power wire usaully both are red (one to relay and one to switch) the red one to relay comes straight from battery and the one to switch comes from ignition. So therefore when ignition is off, Halos are off. And when ignition is on, halos are on, if the switch is made and the relay is "excited". It is a simple wiring schematic, but if you are not familar in the operation of relayed power, it could seem difficult, but it is not. If you PM me I can try to help. Mine are functioning properly, but I have found the quality of the product lacking from the stock headlight. But much more cooler looking and requiring alot of adjustment time. Be careful and not forceful. That is why they recommend professional install. And my body man who, adjusted them for me was not pleased. But it only cost me $15 to get adjusted.

I opted for the internal switch, because I've seen what the blue cross connector can do to wiring, it is not pretty. I connected straight to the battery for my relayed power and soldereded in my Ignition power in the cab to my stereo power wire. You do not want to use the mash down, over wire connectors in the outdoors. I could not believe the Video. I was sick to my stomach!!

But the truck looks nice as Hell, if you were to see it. It is a dark Graphite grey almost black, then the headlights have a black background and the taillights have a carbon fiber background. I think you would be impressed. And all for less than $4000.

Thanks for the help on posting pics. I do already have a photobucket account so it maybe easier than I thought. I'm new here and all forums operate a little differently. The motorcycle forum I frequent lets me post pics through the use of phtobucket. Do we want pics of truck or light install. the light install is complete, so that might not be of use, and I'm not going to do it again. I had to remove my brushgaurd and grill to do the job. Not hard just time consuming.
