Hi all,
Just got 4 8" wipac 4x4 driving lamps to mount on the front of
my "A" bar on my 07 columbia. Anyone else mounted extra lights on the
front ? If so what was the ease of wiring in ??

Best regards,

IanD

Wiring is not that hard, but you will need a separate relay and light switch.
Hi there, about to add driving lights to my X-Trail, but not sure which wire to connect the relay to. Is the X-Trail ground switched? I see 1 red wire and 2 black wires to the headlights. I assume the red wire is hot (12v), but the other 2? There's a black with red stripe and a black one. I guess the red stripe is for the high beam? My Subaru Forester is ground switched meaning I had to connect the relay to the +12v and the high beam return to activate the driving lights rather than the standard high beam and earth connections... Is the Nissan the same?

Sorry about all the questions! :)

:newbie:

It's OK, I've done it by trial and error. Nissans are NOT ground switched (this means that all wires remain high (+12v) until one is grounded to put a light on), unlike Toyotas and Subarus, so I just connected the relay across from ground to the black with red stripe headlight wire, and everything works fine.

No problems :)

I think they're far too low from the ground mate. If I were you and wanted to use all 4 spotties, I would have mounted them on the side of the nudge bar.
