LED strip for interior lighting

So I just purchased an led strip to help with lighting up the interior of the jeep at night. It's 16.4ft of waterproof LEDs and I have no clue where I am going to mount them where no wires show. I was thinking about cutting the roll bar padding and doing them on the roll bars but I'm still not sure. Anyone have any suggestions? Anyone do anything like it for some added light?

My wife's car has LED lighting on the underside of things so you're not seeing the bulbs. Perhaps around the tub rail (underneath), then under the door rails and under the dash. That'd light up the hard to see spots during the night w/o being an issue for you while you're in the rig...

I have strips under the door rails as indicated above. The problem with the tub rails is if you use a hard top, the bolt holes will get in the way.

Yeah I dont have a hard top to get in the way but There is some wiring that runs along the drivers side under there that is going to be in the way and I don't even know what it goes to lol. Yeah I'm not sure where I'm putting the stuff. I guess we will see when they get here lol

Those goes back to your tail lights, etc. So those wires are kind of important.

I'll be putting two 12" blue led bars in one under the steering column area tucked away and the other under where the glove box is to light up down their. I'll also do blue strips in the back along the rails of the tub as well. Everything will have a switch to turn off too.
