i beleve u would need a relay and hook up a wire to the headlights that would trip the relay to turn them on, if u hook straight up to the headlihgts u wull burn the whole cable and melt all the wires ftrom pulling to much of a load, not sure tho just my 2 cents.

try a search next time here is what you need https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...0&postcount=19
get a relay for radio shack a 30amp will do fine. put the 85 pole to the 12+ wire on the head light it acks as a switch I highly DO NOT recommend you doing this though. I would run it to a switch is what i recommend HIGHLY.

if you want to run a switch use this diagram https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...7&postcount=30

yeah bro don't do it. You'll melt your grill more'n likely. Plus it's illegal to have too many forward facing lights on at once.
