I had an issue with the connector being to short and when I called was told to just run the wire through the inside. I didn't like that idea so I just ran the wire behind the bracket as far down I could until the connector and the. Wrapped it in electrical tape so it doesn't stick out so much.

By the way thanks for sending the adapter for the whistle

MagicMtnDan The connectors Rigid Industries provides are high quality units but I think many will find them either too bulky for a clean install or in the wrong place.

The simple answer is often to cut them off and use connectors to tie the light wires to the longer wires needed.

AGGIE_Rubicon I cut my plug off and extended the wire where I pushed the cable into the channel between the window and the a piller and then run it under the corner and cowl to the battery. I used a black silicone to seal the cable into the channel along the window just use your finger and make it really smooth so that it looks like the window seal. I tried running it between the bracket and a pillar but I couldn't get the holes to line up with the extra thickness.

NFRs2000NYC Run it behind the PSC mount. I ran mine between the Jeep and the mount, and you can't tell anything is there. No need to drill into the jeep either.

nwapache I run mine down the windshield into into the engine bay. You can tuck the connector up top at the bracket and zip tie it, or cut and splice like I did. It's not like you're going to unplug it, or anything

That's what I was thinking but you can't squish the adapters smh trying to figure out solution.

A from rigidindustries: the wire can be passed through the upper windshield at the top between the roof seal and then down the inside of the A pillar.

that will leak like hell!
