Question Kc overhead light bar question?

I just bought the KC light bar kit from Quadratec.com

KC HiLiTES Windshield Mount Light Bar with 4 Apollo Pro Series Lights for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ - Quadratec

But I am kind lost on the wire install, I have a 06 and I am curious about how to get the wires from the tube to inside jeep?

I'll take pictures of mine tonight but the shop that installed it drilled into the windshield frame. Small hole and ten plugged it up with a grommet and fed the wires through.

Not a light bar, but that's where I ran my wires for my windshield lights.
