    Im looking to have my aux two 6inch lights light up with my brights.. what is the easiest way of doing this? Splicing into the wire at the headlight? Is that too much of a load?

    Ive been wanting to do this for awhile but Im not sure of the best way.


    Thanks

    The stock wiring is weak for the existing lights; adding more lights directly to the circuit is asking for trouble.

    At the very least, use the factory highbeam circuit to close a relay or two to drive your aux lights; if I were you I'd consider doing relays on your headlights and highbeams as well, as it's a low-buck improvement. See

    As said above. Use a few relays.
