Question Wiring Connector

I bought a pair of these lights for my grill chop:



I suck at electrical stuff, but I can solder wires together. In this case I'd like to use a connector that would allow them to be disconnected and reconnected as the need arises, instead of soldering them and having to cut the connection & resolder.

What type of connector should I use, and where online is the best place to get this sort of thing?

Found the name of what I was looking for - Weather Pack Terminals



The best place I've found to buy them online so far is: www.proweldperformanceparts.com/id67.html

If anyone knows of a better source (especially if it's in Canada) let me know

I've been looking for a while... I don't like/trust the factory Jeep connections.

I just googled DEUTSCH and their connectors look awesome.... but the friggin' proprietary crimping tool is $250.00

.... for now the Weather Pack connectors will have to do.
