Rigid lights
 
Here's a photo of how I did it.

Great idea! The wires don't get hot?

No not really like you would think. And they give you plenty of wire too. I have about 2 extra feet just wrapped up an zip tied under the dash.

Thanks man!
I'll post up some pics as soon as I get started. Got my lightbar in today but waiting on Rigid to build my lights.

FYI, I never liked those "scotch clips". If you start having any electrical problems check there first, the little blade in the clip tends to loose contact quite easily. You will never see those on any professional wire looms, just on cheap radio installations (LOL). Splice your wires and always use heat shrink, it will last much longer.

I plan on doing it right, just live 30 miles from the nearest town/auto parts store. And I wanted to get it done because my brother had won these for me in a Rigids contest. They wanted a pic of them and I wanted to see how much different they were compared to the KC lights I had.
