    So i don't want to hook straight to the battery because there will be a draw on the lighted switch. So I would like to hook up to acc but not rob it from the auxiliary or cig outlets. Thinking of using a relay but not sure the wiring diagram. I found this in Google can someone tell me me if this right [​IMG]

    Looks right. Here is the relay I got (with harness) for my tacoma. Install wasn't bad.

    Fuse block is a good idea.

    Well the lights came with a complete wiring kit but i wanted to do a ACC wire for the power end instead of using the battery.

    The diagram looks fine but you're going to want to go with a 30A fuse and a 40 amp relay. 20A called out in the diagram won't cut it.

    300W / 12V = 25 Amps.

    Is there a way to make the fuse block Acc. Im really just extending the battery into the cab. If i can than I could just wire it without going to the battery.

    You can with a relay. Only problem you will run into is amp draw and the rating on the relay how many amps it can handle.
