Just wondering if anyone can show any pics or diagrams of where they fished the power wires for a pair of driving lights I have. I'm going to mount them on windshield brackets.

you can run them into the cowl, then under the hood.

Do you see those 2 Torx screws/bolts on the cowl? If you take them off you, you can lift up the ends of the cowl and run wire from the lights strait into the engine bay.

I ran my wires under the cowel and thru the grommet that the wiper wires go thru. I go my power from a sub panel the I mounted next to the fuse box.

They all flip down, the hinges are hidden on TJs and JKs, I believe. But they're right about the cowl, I wasn't aware of it cause I've got a YJ; I'll be sticking to threads about those from now on, my bad!
