Take a look at the link posted by robtbritn, it's a good simple explanation and you should wire any aux. lighting with a relay.....

Looking for a relay control hot tap that goes dead with the key turned off...i.e. Acc. Help

Ran into deer @ 60+MPH on free way...Headlights didn't get the job done. Pleasantly surprised how little damage, Front bumper cover only, and how well the Jeep handled the running over it with the right front tire, very stable!!!

Drivers side under the hood, above the master cylinder, there's a rubber plug...that's where I run my wires.

Alright, I must be missing something.....So, that plug leads to the cab? In my Jeep, the back side of that plug is solid so....it must snake (i'm guessing here)..if that's the case...how did you snake the wire down and in to the cab.....
sorry if this all sounds stupid....I'm really not as dumb as I look! Hahaha

really surprised someone hasn't done a video on this.....

The plug in mine is rubber. Should be the same in your '09. I cut a small hole into the center of mine with an Exacto knife to make room for the new wires...

Remove the plug Krutj mentioned. Then take off the side panel on your dash (pops out). You'll see a foam-filled hole about the size of a silver dollar. Fish a straightened coathanger through the engine bay hole into the cab, attach wires with electrical tape, and pull through.

Ok, here's my writeup on this. A few months late but hey, they haven't come out with a new model yet eh?
