Where To Run Wires

Anybody out there got lights mounted on windshield brackets? If so where can u run the wires where there not just out in the open and it looks decent. I've got a set of lights on mine but there not wired up an I was just curious where u guys ran the wires.

Mine is probably not the easiest or smartest way, but I pulled my cowl and drilled a hole into the engine bay. So the wire goes from the light, into the crack of the cowl, through the hole, and to the relay.

On a TJ, I always run the wire behind the hinge, and then behind/under the cowl. From inside the cowl area, there is a hole you can pull your wire through to get to where ever your relay is (if you can't find the hole, you can drill your own).

In this pic, you can barely just see the wires on the right of the hinge. In person, you have to get that close to see it.

IMO, it's the cleanest wire routing.
