Where to run wiring on my 2013 JKU?

Picked up a pr of KC spots that I'm mounting on the windshield, how do I go about getting the wiring inside the cab? Also, what's a good location to mount the small switch that comes with the wiring harness?

Thanks in advance.

Fire wall passenger side behind battery, there should be a hole behind insulation .you can pull off end piece of dash to see.
Driver side by brake booster same......

All JK'S have the same pass thru on either side. Just pop off the side panel of the dash and you will see a foam filled hole about the size of a nickel.

Just pushed my CB power wires through that hole. A coat hanger, picture wire, whatever is stiff enough should push through. I don't see a lot, if any, water getting through there but a dab of silicone sealant probably wouldn't hurt.

I think there's a larger pass-thru on the firewall itself near the break booster that you can actually access on the driver's side. On the passenger side the battery box and the heater ducts make access impossible to most pass-thru's

You can use non-expanding foam sealant with a straw applicator to reseal the hole.

As for mounting the switch, that all just personal preference. Where ever you want it and it will fit.

There is a hole on in the firewall on the drivers side it's got alittle rubber grommet you can cut alittle to run a wire through, as for the switch I don't know the best spot I have a spod but they make switch holders to mount in several places, one behind the shifter were that little net thing is, you pop that panel out

I bought a small plastic project box from Radio Shack, mounted my switches in it, and installed the box to the right of the steering column on the flat/vertical part of the dash there. I used adhesive caulk to secure it as I didn't want to drill the dash. It's held up all throughout the summer heat. Looks great, as it blends with the dash, too.
