Correct. Pop off the side panel on your dash. Poke a coat hanger through the hole filled with foam and pull the wires through. Drill a 1/2 hole in the dash above the speaker for the switch.

They go right through the foam in that nickel size hole into the engine bay.

I mounted mine on my Daystar storage bin on the top of the dash. Works great and I can see the light on the switch to verify they are on during the day. The wire goes through the foam and, if on the left side, comes out right next to the battery. That's a good place to mount the relay.

I'm assuming that by "left side" you mean passenger side.

My battery is on my passenger side, which is in fact the "left side" from inside the cab, but I'm a RHD guy and y'all are backwards.

May I suggest looking into sPOD (sPOD FAQS) If the budget allows. Its the first thing thats going in after the custom sound system. Im going with the professional look in my jeep. Some like the interior to look a little rough because of how the Jeep naturally is I say I want a beast that can go over anything but I want her to be well kept in the cab. Just my two cents
