Smittybilt SRC Front Bumper

I am trying to install new KC Slim Lights on my bumper. I noticed that there are 2 pre drilled holes underneath for running the wiring. I am having a difficult time in getting the wires to run down the tubes. I have tried a coat hanger & mason wire with no luck on getting the wires to go where I want them. Any help would be appreciated.

Get yourself an old speedometer cable, they are flexiable yet strong and can they can be manuvered easily.


I may not be as good for as many times as I once was, but, I'm as good once as I ever was ! ! !

Just got done running the wires through the src front bumper. There is no hole between the two pieces of tube from the top to the bottom. So when you run the wires from the top down or bottom up the wire is just going to hit that bottom straight tube of the bumper. I drilled my holes for the bottom part of the bumper on the backside of the tube, not from underneath. After i drilled that hole i had to take another drill bit and drill a hole into the other tube, through the hole i just drilled, that the upper lights are attached. then i took some wire and dropped it down the tube and pulled up the wire. Too a lot of time to get the angle of the drill just right so you dont come out of the side of the bumper and just to get the drill to catch on that round tube. Any questions just ask

p.m. me if you want pics

What a royal PITA

Okay, I confess to being a little neurotic, but I never want to do this again. I just ran 16 ga SJOOW cable through the bumper. As previous posters have noted, there is no hole between the top tube and lower tube, so if you are going to run wire through this, you have to drill through both tubes. I managed to drill through the inside, and I ran para cord, thinking that this would be an easy way to fish the wires through, but you cannot drill a hole big enough to run both wires through one side. I ended up drilling a 5/8" hole in the bottom tube, and a 3/8" through to the top tube. I wanted one nice clean connection to a single cable exiting the bumper, so I had to run the right hand side top light down the right hand side of the top tube and then over to the left side through the bottom tube. It probably used more wire than I would normally want. But its pretty well insulated and even at 85 watts, it will only pull 7 amps.

Other than that I will run the rest of the connection through 14 ga SJOOW and wrap it in loom. I have used the OEM style switches, and a Bussmann relay box, so, when it's all said and done, it should be a pretty clean install.

I have only been chipping away at it for a month though, so....
