Just wire it to your parking lights(brown wire @ the headlight switch). Make sure you fuse it though.

thanx! i could just put a butt connector in that brown wire, take one wire to go to the switch, and two wires twisted together on the other side of the connector: one going where that wire normally goes (parking lights), and another wire going a few inches into a fuse link then to my cab lights ey?

I recommend soldering the wire in especially when splicing but to each there own.

Yeah, i recommend solding to the wire instead of cutting it then crimpimg a butt connector on it. Solder it then cover it with a heatshrink tube or wrap electrical tape on it real tight, then put a ziptie on top of the solder. That way when the e-tape eventually fails from heat, the ziptie will keep it on there for a long time.
