Wiring Issue

Got my 20in rigid industries led light bar n yesterday and got it installed. Im sure this question has been answered already n if so my bad. I couldnt get the light to work with the upliffer switch, im almost certain i didnt have a good ground. I ended up just using the supplied switch until i figure it out. Could someone give me some insite on connecting the wires - red, blue, n black(ground) to the upliffer switch (yellow wire) and what or where the ground was grounded? Oh n damn this ligbt is bright.

I ended up calling Rigid on this issue and the guy at Rigid told me to cut the provided wire just before the relay. I had the factory upfitter switches so the relays are already wired and did not need the relay. The only wire that I needed was the red and black wire. The red wire went to upfitter switch and the ground wire was grounded in the picture below. The ground is where other ground wires are attached and can be located on the drivers side right up against the firewall...... Hopefully the yellow arrow is visible in the picture. The blue wire that came with the wire harness is used to power the switch, per Rigid.

I just ordered two of the SRM mini flush mount ambers to install as well. I will post some pictures once I am done later this week. Hopefully they will look as good as I envision them, since there is no turning back once I make the cuts.
