OKLED Light Bar Wiring

I am looking into getting a 30" okled light bar to go in my lower valence. When i was on their website, it says that the light bar does not come with a plug. So i'm wondering how you guys are wiring it up? Their website gives some information, but i'm too much of a noob to understand

Order their wire harness they offer and it's plug and play. Comes with all the wire and connectors as well as a switch.

You can order their harness. (suggested) or you can make your own... I did. I used waterproof connectors, put male on the light bar and female on the wires running to my relays and switch. With the amount of lights I have had at one point and time it was much cheaper to build my own than buy 5 wiring harness.

I just installed one of there 30" light bars and it came with the harness. I had to solder one connector but they supplied the connector - very easy. I haven't actually wired mine up, but when I do I will wire the lights into my high beams.

What is the best/easiest way to mount the bar? Can you just drill it straight on to the crash cans?

And thanks for the help guys!

TW members have used these brackets for 30" light bar. I was too cheap and built my own. http://www.4wheelparts.com/Lighting-...FQ-CfgodDQYAYg

The easiest way to mount the light bar would be to use those Rigid brackets or to bolt the lightbar mount vertically onto the aluminum "crash can". However, mounting the light with the supplied mounting brackets in a vertical position means that the light bar will be recessed into the grill opening. IMO, if recessed back in the opening the light from the outer floodlights on the light bar might be blocked and that's why I mounted mine more flush with the opening. Using those Rigid brackets or making your own bracket and mounting horizontally allows the light bar to be near the grill opening.
