So WHAT'S wrong with your idea ?
Sounds logical to me if you want to HIDE the Wires it's the way to go.
If HIDING is of NO concern, you could just Tape or Zip Tie the Wires to the tubing.
There is NO ONE WAY of securing the Wires to keep from just hanging.
Use whatever works best for you that you'd be able to live with, it's your Jeep.

But Hey~~~What do I Know ┐

1) the lights probably aren't hooked up and are a "for show" display
2) I just used wire loom and zipties to run the wires down the hoop. as long as its all black you can hardly see it from more than 5ft away.
What have we got?
We have one heavily armed Recreational Vehicle
