Upfitter Switches?

If I wanted to hook up an LED light bar to the upfitter switches how would I do this. Is there a wiring diagram? Do I need relays and such?

First, you could hook up an led lightbar to an upfitter switch. As to whether you will need a relay, that depens on the amperage draw of the lightbar. If it exceeds 30amps, then definately.

Amperage definatly wont exceed 30 amps. So basically the wire to which ever switch i choose is hot when the switch is on and I would just need to hook that to the light and ground the other wire from the light?

That would be correct. You have 2 20amp and 2 30amp switches, choose whichever one best suits your application and that will be the positive, then ground the negative to a location that is convenient. Should work fine.

Correction: According to Ford's Q-117-R1 Document, AUX 1 is 30 Amp, AUX 2 is 30 AMP, AUX 3 is 10 AMP and AUX 4 is 15 AMP and all of these switches are feeding relays. Your 4 "Blunt Cut Wires" as they call them, are relay outputs at the above current values. Just Google "Ford Q-117-R1" and you get a PDF of the instructions including a schematic.
