    How/where do you guys hook up your lights, in my subaru i only have 4, 2 pairs and i running them to: battery-relay-switch, switch-ground, switch to fuse box, i'm running to the fuse box cause i wanted to have the lights on whenever. This set up worked great but on the tacoma i want to put many lights, how do the guys with like 6 or more lights wire them, is there anyway to have them on whenever without going into the fuse box? Also how many lights can the single oem battery/alternator take? Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    Use a relay to switch them on and off. Get the power for the lights from the fuse block in the engine compartment. Usually there are a few open spots to tap power from. Just test the open spots to see which have power all the time.

    I am not sure how many lights you can run. Guess it depends on what type of lights (how many watts / amps they draw).
