    I can not help with the answer to your question, sorry about that part. I am interested in how it turns out, and your opinion of it. Please post pictures when you install it. Maybe giving a little more info about your truck would help? Trim, packages. I think it might make a difference if you have the snazzy upgraded headlights.

    Welcome from NY.

    Why not put the black wire on a body bolt under the hood for the ground and tap the red wire on either a headlight + or marker light +? This way it will come on with just the marker lights or when the headlights are on. No switch is needed. I would definitely put a in-line fuse on the red + wire though.
    Hopefully this makes sense to you

    Agreed... Ground the black wire to either the battery or one of the many chassis/body grounds under the hood. For the positive wire, get a fuse tap similar to the one I linked. Make sure you double check the type of the fuse you are using as they make taps for every type of fuse out there. Just select a fuse that is only on with your headlights or parking lights.

    This method keeps you from tapping into any wiring and potentially causing expensive damages.
