Don't waste your $, this couldn't be easier. Think of electricity like water. Power and ground like 2 seperate streams. The lights in this case need to both streams to flow to it in order to work.
Start by hooking the power and ground directly to the battery. (50/50 power or ground wire...dont worry if you mix it up, nothing will be messed up) Lights should light up. Now all you have to do is mount the lights where you want them, and run the wires to the battery, making sure to tuck/hide wires along the way.
The switch is super easy. All it does is interupt the flow of power. You can place it on either the positive or negative wire. Doesn't matter, but I prefer the negative. I suggest going to a radio shack, getting a tiny little toggle switch 2 positions, and some speaker wire. (The kind with 2 wires side by side. You can just use electrical tape, but I recommend using some spade connectors. Ask the radio shack folks, all this stuff is super easy.
I placed my switch in a hidden place in the panel where the tool box is. Look up posts started by me, I have some LED ones that explain more.
