Default Wiring off road lights - Help

Hope this is in right categorie but here goes;

I got two 100 watt halogens with my next to free bed bar.

Also got wiring harness and relay. Just not sure if power goes to relay then switch or vice versa...
Heres some pics that may help me get an answer...

Thanks. Not sure what you mean by one line though.
I do understand the grnd symbol n such but was confused as to what went where.
Your directions dont work perfectly with wires included but thinking some missing. although I am unsure what the two small yellow wires are for.

Yeh the KC diagram will work. I usually pull the supply wire for the switch off the headlight switch, this way the lights can't be left on unless you leave your headlights on. (this can be off the wire for parking lights, low or high beams). Other then that it should be pretty easy.

That's a pretty good wiring diagram. Like stated above, if the switch is powered off the head lights or parking lights, it will keep you from killing your battery. If the relay isn't sealed, make sure it is mounted inside the cab some where. Mounting it in the engine bay will only cause you continuous problems from moisture getting in and corroding the contacts. Found that out the hard way...
