I have 6 100 w lights installed on my rack and pro comp bar. I need to know if I should get some sort of seperate power supply and how i should wire them. this is my first experiance with electrical on this truck so i have no idea. I have a diesel with two batteries that you can wire anything anywhere without any mods. Let me know what yall do!

You need relays. each light is pulling 8.3 amps and most relays can handle 30 amps. All of your lights running will be pulling 50 amps. I don't know if they're all facing forward or if you have one or two facing backwards. If they're all facing forward: Run at least 2 8ga wires to two different relays, then up to the lights and have 1 14ga to each light. If having 2 lights facing backwards: run 1 6ga and 1 10ga to 2 different relays. You can figure the rest.

you'll need a higher output alternator for those if you plan on running them all at once.

how do you want to switch them? All 6 together, 2/4, 2/2/2, 3/3? With the correct relays and a fuse block you can do most anything.
