    Hi All,

    I found a good deal on a 20" LED bar and I have split it into two bars to light the under hood area of my 2009 4x4 SR5 DC SB. Here's my question. In the terrible wiring diagram I've attached, does 1 = 2? In other words, is that an acceptable circuit to feed 12v to both bars? I would like to wire it up like number 1 so that I can merely cap the exposed ends of the bar where I've cut and splice the original wires into the + and - runs. Number 2 in my diagram would require soldering, which doesn't look terribly easy on these bars.

    Thanks,
    Adam

    Yeah, they would be the same, if I were to do it, I would probably do #1

    Great, thanks. I was 95% sure about it, but just wanted a second opinion.
