Adding Driving lights

Got my Rugged Ridge windshield mounts and a set of Hella 500FF Driving lights.

Should I put like 8 gauge wire to a distribution block behind the dash for future use, or just hook up the lights like in the instructions?

And yes it's muddy from monday's off road trip!

Looks good Alan
Most people like to use a relay to activate the lights.
This way you don't have a high amperage wire running to the inside of the Jeep.
You will just have a tiny 18 ga. wire to the switch and the heavy wires will stay under the hood.

Don't even try to put them there!!!
Behind those factory switches is a circuit board that you don't even want to mess with.
I added my switches above the driver side dash speeker.
There are some write-up's around, a search should get you there.
