The usual way is/was to aim the light in one wing as a taxi light, so yes you can use the 14AWG wire in the Van's harness for that purpose.
However if you choose to use two of the Flyleds Combo lights you would get landing lights and
taxi lights in both wings...

Wires F2291 and F2313 in the WH-00125 fuselage harness can be repurposed to power the Flyleds taxi lights, given that they only draw one amp. These two wires join up with wire L419 in the wings.
We now have wiring diagrams and (soon!) a kit of parts
to integrate Flyleds position and strobe kits and landing lights with the Van's harnesses available on our website.
