Default Auxilliary lights behind the grill.

I decided I want to go ahead with this.
My Ram already has a switch in the cab to turn on the trailer brake system I had installed, but no longer pull a big trailer. So I thought what if I could just rig up the lights to that switch.

I want to install a nice pair of LED's possibly behind the grill, trucks I have seen with this look bad A. Anyone ever done this, how would I wire exactly?

If you buy an off-road led assembly then it would be simple as wiring any accessory, not needing resistors as they will be built in. If you are looking to use leds as accent lighting they usually have resistors built in as well. Check out superbrightleds.com they have led strips and accent lighting perfect for that. Then its the power wire from the accessory to the switch, a wire from the switch to a positive lead, and then a wire from the switch to the ground, and of course grounding the lights. That's basically it for a illuminated switch.
