Wiring management under the hood
I'm adding my first set of bumper lights to the jeep, and while I'm reasonably comfortable with general wiring, I've not done it on a vehicle before. I've been looking through stu-offroad and other places for ideas on where to run the wiring, but most places seem to focus on switch location and mounting the lights. That's the easy part to me, but I'm more interested in where to run the wiring under the hood to keep it looking professional, and if I should/can tie into existing relays (I have no wiring mods on a 2005 TJ) or if I should add my own relay and fuse block.

Where are you folks running your wiring to keep it looking tidy. Anyone have pictures? :crash:

I just installed some hellas a few weeks ago. On the fire wall there is a large oval shaped rubber plug that is easy to remove. I drill a small hole in that plus to run wire from the switch to the relay. I mounted the relay just off of the battery and ran wire to the passenger headlight for the switched power ( fog lights only with head lights and no fogs with high beams (blue stripped wire)) this allowed me to zip tie to the existing wire comb. I'm happy.
