Running the off road lights

How do you guys run the wires on an aftermarket bumper with light tabs?
Do you drill holes and run grommets? I would like to hide the wires.

I drilled under the tabs and fished the wires thru. I prepped the bumper before the install.

Did you drill a hole at the bottom of the tube as well? The light bar is solid and no hole at the bottom. My bumper is powder coated.

yes I did. I have the barricade bumper and knew I was going to run lights on the bar so drilled all the holes before I put the bumper on.

I have the OR FAB and the bumper is on the Jeep.
Do you have a build thread or can you post a couple of pictures?
Thanks

I don't have a build thread or pics prior to the lights but here is an old pic after the lights were installed.
