Making wireless lights, wired?

I am looking at getting some warn 3.5" wireless lamps to mount near my mirrors, but I dont want another thing dangling from my key chain. Is there a way that you can utilize the wireless technology (not have to run wires through the fire wall etc, but put these on a toggle switch? Any input is appreciated.

The wireless part only means that instead of using a switch to trigger the relay, that the wireless button acts as the switch. You follow the install instructions exactly. Except where they have the wireless remote trigger the relay, wire in a switch.

It's very possible, cheap and easy.
