need some help hooking up driving lights to upfitters

okay, so i feel really dumb right now, but i can't figure out how to hook these damn things up.....they work just fine using the switch that came with the kit so I know the lights are good........

basically i have a white wire, red wire, and black wire which goes to the switch.........

how do i hook this into the factory upfitter switches?

the wires you want to use are behind the headlight knob. There are 4 orange wires... i think two with white stripes... those are 3 and 4... they are only a 10amp switch versus 1 and 2 are 20.. i think.

thanks guys.........

was having a brain fart because of the white and red wire in the harness. The lights themselves only have a Black and a White coming off them, so i'm assuming that the white wire (power) will go to the power feed on the firewall and the black will go to the negative terminal on the battery?
