    Is that the proper way to do it? Theoretically they should come on with just my DTRLS and when i turn my headlights on. correct?

    Yessir! Or you can run it through switch but that's a little more work. Post pictures when you're done!

    I will post some pics. So I just splice the ground wires from the led/halo into the white/black wire from DTRL and the positive wire to the green wire from dtrl?

    No pic.. But did you seal them up better with anything? Theyre probly gonna leak water through it or get condensation one, or both... Maybe not if you're lucky...

    Edit, Nvm the link worked.

    I got the HID Chrome version of these. No complaints here. The halo's and decorative LED's are wired onto a seperate circuit that is just on with the ignition is on. That way if I use the DTRL's or the headlights they are on. My DTRL's turn off when I turn on my headlights.

    I run everything through relay's. It's a bit overkill and maybe unnecessary, but it's an extra safety net where I can separate high power draw (usually light bars) away from a lower power rated device (switchs, etc).

    Pic looks good OP.

    I actually prefer this method, cause you can turn on the demon eyes whenever. And they also make them in RGB, more color
