    what you need is a standard switch to give them 12V to turn on.....then a momentary push button switch to give the pattern wire a 12v shot every time you push it to change patterns...

    any good installer can pre-wire this set-up for you and you could just drop it into your truck....connect to lights and your done.....pretty easy for a installer to do for you..
