Single harness split to two harnesses - options?

I had a whole master plan that just got completely redone:

LED bar on the front bumper, wired to a switch inside. Simple. Got it all wired up, but had to cut up the bumper to make the LED bar fit. Never got around to cutting the bumper up, and I'm selling the LED bar to get some standard long-range driving lights instead.

Because I'm mounting two separate driving lights, they have two individual harnesses. I have the original harness already installed, fed through a relay, and wired up to the switch.

Now the dilemma becomes trying to find a Y-splitter / Y-cable or something of the like, but I can't find anything online.

Is my only other option to splice all the wiring together? And what does the setup need to look like if I do have to cut into the wiring?

Simple answer is to grab your soldering iron and solder like colors together. Voltage can split almost unlimitedly. As long as your relay is big enough to handle all the current (watts) you're fine.

So in theory, I could solder the wiring from light A into the wiring of light B, and still pop the harness into the existing wiring harness through the engine bay?

Only reason I'd like to utilize those is because they're the quick-disconnect kind in case I want to remove them, replace bulbs, etc.

Yep. As long as you wire + to + and ground to ground you're fine. Assuming both harnesses are from the same vendor, it should be a simple match the color game
