Default How to wire Halo/LED lights on the truck.

So I ordered these projector headlights for my truck and from
what I understand the Halo rim lights and LEDs are assembled
already into the headlight housing, but require the owner to
somehow rewire them for it to be lit up. This is the product
by the way Amazon.com: Spyder Auto Ford F150 Version 2 Black Halogen LED Projector Headlight: Automotive

So my question is how does one do this? And if so if you have
the same housing could someone please make a step by step guide
to do so? Thanks in advance for the help.

All the tail lights package will come as a pair left side and right side; designed as direct bolt-on replacement parts
All wiring for the headlights was preassembled for essential plug and play application, halo rim wires need to connect and do some simple wiring connection
These lights are made by an OE approved and ISO certified manufacturer with the quality meet or exceed all OE standards
Some of the package includes light bulbs, for package which does not come with any light bulbs, you can apply the stock light bulbs for installation

The part in bold....

The halo rings don't draw that much so you can splice them into the park/run light wire connection on each headlight....

Another way....

Some others on a different forum have chosen to use a relay and install a rocker switch in the cab to turn them on and off....the power wire will then come from the battery and make sure to use an inline fuse.....the relay remote power wire usually comes from the park/run light wire.....

Could I ask how one would do the first option since it respectfully reads a lot
easier than the second option? More detail if you please, thank you.

There should be two wires attached to the rim that you are trying to light up, to connect them to the headlights, you first need to find the correct wires to splice into... if they only come on when the brights are on I bet you won't like that.
Once you have the wires there are a few methods to splice them:
1. buy an inline splicer from the autoparts store with the right connectors that you hook to your wires
2. cut the wires, strip the insulation off a little on each end of the cut wire, then twist the old wires, plus your new wire back together, then cover them with duct tape
3. find a friend that has experience with wires and have him do it for you.

If it were me I would do the second option, the one with the separate switch for the halo lights. This would be fairly easy to do(for me), and not too hard to explain. I would do this for if I wanted to have just the halo turned on with the other lights turned off.
what i would do:
find the wire that powers my radio (mine is aftermarket, and I know which it is because it is labeled), splice a wire into that, and run that wire to a switch in the dash (I would go to radio shack to get one), then run another wire from that switch to the positive halo wire. after that I would connect the negative wire to any grounded point that is close by, probably a screw in the frame, or I would find a new screw and use that as a new grounding point, but I would need to make sure to sand that area down so that it had a good connection.

I hope that helped you on deciding on which method to do, and both seem fairly easy, with the first being the easiest.

Thanks a lot tico for your reply it is greatly appreciated. This forum
is way better than other ones I'm currently involved in. The community
is much more helpful without the sarcasm and actually answers the
question that is asked. I wired the halos and led to the parking lights
since I always have it on anyway, and I'm pretty happy with what
I did. Thanks for your help bro it greatly helps. You also 88 that's
exactly what I did.

Thanks a lot. Here's the pictures. Aside from the light being a lot
dimmer from my HIDs it's pretty good. Gotta learn how to aim it before
I actually get another set of HIDs for the housing. But here is what it
looks like.
