XJ Light bar and light help

I have a 2000 jeep cherokee sport, and I am going to get a light bar above the windshield with lights on them, i'm wondering how to connect the wiring(hidden) to the high beams when turned on and not the normal lights?

Roof rack lighting on Cherokees generally wired by drilling through the roof and then run the wire down the A pillar behind the molding to get to behind the dash and then you should be able to do whatever you want with it. Hard wiring into the high beams is not a good idea IMO. Wire up a independent switch and mount in your dash. Be sure to use a relay though for the power to the lights.

Lots of switches for sale out there. Shop around. Find what you like. Cut a hole in the dash for it to fit where ever you like. Hook the relay signaling wires to run through it.
