Where did you route your wiring?

I'm at the stage where I'm considering what off road lights to get and I'm thinking on a 50" light bar for above the windshield and 2 smaller led units for the base of the A pillars. I'm just wondering where you guys routed your wires. I'm looking to do the neatest install possible and I would like the lights to look like they belong there as apposed to being an after thought. Any help on methods of running the wires or routes to take would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

A-pillar is pretty easy. Here's a video of an installation. That's what I did, looks neat, don't even notice the little bit of wire that's showing.

That really helps for the A pillar lights and the D2's are the lights I was considering. Thanks for posting that.

Sure, it's really easy. The longest part of the job for me was lining up the lights and getting them pointed where I wanted them. I put a set of rigid dually lights on the a pillars and I love them.

I have a set in the back too...a little gift for tail gaters

Check my build thread "Sierra Nevada Edition" at post #87. Shows how I ran my a-pillars and 50" bar.

my LED bar has the wire on the drivers side. Instead of using zip ties I tucked the wire behind the A piller mount until it got about halfway down, then I used these cable clamps to hold it. The wire then tucks into the cowl. The cable clamps are only plastic but they are very secure under the A pillar mount and after 4 months I've had no issues with them at all.
