I have a 2008 RAV 4 and have two Speed Tech W-400S Quad Carbine® Spotlight Off Road LED Work Lights to install. Any guidance on the electrical hook-up for these similar to the post related to installing fog lights using OEM wiring?Thanks in advance for any help

Are mounting the lights to the front or rear? If front, it's easy enough to find a hot wire to tap into. If rear, it would be best to run another wire the length of the car. The only thing I can think of in the rear that's always hot is the courtesy light in the rear door, and I doubt that could handle the load of a pair of work lights.
In spite of that, I think I'd prefer the lights in the rear to work straight from a tool box in the cargo space.

I am mounting two spot lights (LEDS) on the front brush guard. I have found the two external connectors behind the front bumper for after market fog lights so once I get power to these from inside the cab I am good to go. The spot lights were each supplied with just about 2 feet of wire (2 leads) and no switch or anything to tie into the interior wiring. I was following the detailed post about the OEM fog light addition and was hoping to do something similar but cannot find any OEM or after market switch/harness assembly to tie into the interior power. Local Toyota and NAPA stores offered only you supply switch. So, I need help to know what wire(s) to tap into uber the dash. There is already a 15A fuse in the fuse box for the Fog Light circuit. Any help would be appreciated.
