Newbie with off road lighting

I've got a Tacoma that I'm mounting 2 PIAA off road lights to.
Should I be wiring these to the hi beams or is it better to create a separate switch. I'm a rookie at off road lighting and would appreciate any help.

Welcome to TW!

The two lights I have on my truck are wired to a switch directly to the battery. I originally was going to wire them into my hi-beams, however I did it the way I did so when I'm stopped and if my truck is off I can always have light if I need it without having to turn on any other electronics.

I also did it like this because I can pass other drivers with my aux lights on, because they aren't aimed very high and they are only 55w. Obviously I turn my brights off, however.

At the end of the day it's all about how you use your truck though and how you want it! Let us know how you installed it!
