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.

Some guys flip the windshield and put them directly into the cabin

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.

Why does it look like that windshield doesn't fold down...

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!
