Wiring help

Anybody know a good spot to bring wires through the firewall? Just installed some windshield mount KCs today...I'll need to wire up a switch on the dash tomorrow. Looking for an easy spot to come through.

Looks like a plan to me! Thanks man! I just went and pulled off that plastic cover on the inside and I see the hole. However, I don't see where it comes out under the hood. I guess I'll find out soon enough. Where's my drill? Update to follow, Thanks again!

How do you remove the Panel on the left side of the dash, where you pulled the wires through the Firewall? I'm getting Lights installed next week, and want to mount the Switch where you have yours. I figured if I removed the Panel before I got it over to the 4x4 place doing my Lights, I'd stand less of a chance getting a Panel Snap broken off.

Thanks!

Cheers!

Just get your nails or a trim removing tool under the lid... push the surrounding molding a bit and voila...
Do it all gently.. this is Jeep plastic you are dealing with...

The plastic cover popped right off as soon as I started investigating how it was held on.
