stans1stjeep Make sure you fuse any circuit you attach to your battery.

so you wired the yellow and the white to the battery directly.....
I was thinking that but the wanted it to be only able to come on when the ignition is on but need a spot near the battery...........

Are you talking about how to run the wires into the cab? If so, it's simple. There are a number of holes through the firewall. Easiest would be to remove one of the side panels on your dash (see last photo in Yella's post...that's one of the side panels).

With the panel off you'll see a quarter-sized hole with foam in it. Remove the rubber filler cap from the engine bay side, straighten out a coathanger, tape the wires to it, and fish em through to the cab.

Rogerg ^ hes refering to the cowl which is the part that goes under the windshield.Loosen up a few screws and you can tuck in the wires behind it.

cu in oz I'm no wiring genius but its simple. I loosened up the panel in front of the windshield and ran the wiring under it to either side next to the light mounts that simply screw into the windshield provided points. There is a tiny 'lip'/indentation in the panel that allows the wires to easily pass. Its really easy......
