RIGID LED Installation

I just purchased two Dually D2 lights from RIGID. Included with the lights is a fairly simple wire harness. I want to connect the lights to the factory installed upfitter switches (1 or 2.) My question is regarding the connection of the included wiring harness to the upfitter wiring. The RIGID wiring ends with three wires that fit into the supplied on/off switch and obviously the upfitter switch only has one wire extension. (I have included pictures of the RIGID wiring.) Is there an adapter that will solve this problem? Does anyone have any prior knowledge or advice? Before I start cutting the RIGID wiring I would appreciate any help. Thanks

Do you have a wiring diagram or a link for these lights?

You're gonna have to cut. Take a look at the wiring diagram that Rigid provided: connect the main power and ground for the relay as indicated and use the upfitter switch as the trigger wire for the relay. I did my install a few months ago and can't remember which wire went where, but I could go back out and take a look if you need me to.

Did you ever figure this out? I too have the same question.

There is three wires for the supplied relay that comes with the kit. Red is 12+ and black is - and blue is the switch wire. You will need to rewire the supplied harness so that the red wire goes from the desired upfitter all the way to the lights and ground the black wire (where ever you really want to). The factory upfitters already have relays built in so the supplied relay and blue wire will not be used. Hope this makes sense.
