Hi all. I just installed a new 9" led light bar and I want to wire to existing headlight switch. Can someone offer some help to which wires I can tap in to.

Hi I recommend you not wire into the headlight circuit because you are likely to want to control it separately.
Did it come with a harness and switch?
If not I would buy a harness and switch do it would have its own relay.
If so I would power it from the accessory circuit
Parts of the problem with direct wiring is that you might overload the headlight circuit.

Here鈥檚 the harness with switch I bought-works great. The control circuit is powered from the accessory plug (or the headlight circuit in you case) and the light is powered by the battery. This way, the only current draw from the accessory circuit is what it takes to operate the relay in the control circuit; once you hit the switch the relay is energized, it closes and powers the light circuit from the battery. However, if you already have a winch well there鈥檚 another pair of eyelets on your battery posts...
