Hello and sorry if this question has been asked before.

I am planning to purchase a "KC HiLiTES 50 in. Gravity Pro6 LED Light Bar w/ Windshield Mounting Brackets".

My question is more about cleanliness on the wiring install to the actual lights up the a pillar. I have looked everywhere to my knowledge about the wiring that goes up the A pillar to the lights. It appears to me there really isn't a perfect way to run them without seeing the wires. I wish the wires could fit under the a pillar bar but they look like they can't - so they need to be running along side near the windshield, or I have seen some people run them up and over near the freedom panel down the door panel. I just find this strange that there is no easy way to run the main wires up to the light bar. Does anyone know of an A pillar bar that has a wiring cutout under the bar for the wiring or some other more logical option for running the wires cleanly and maybe hidden completely from people.

You can put the wires through the firewall and bring them out under the corner panel under the A pillar but there will still be a few inches of wire going form the panel to the bottom of the bracket you show above. There is no way short of drilling a hole at the top of the A-pillar or the bottom of the A pillar to avoid seeing a wire bundle unless you design an A pillar/corner panel/bracket combination replacement panel.

Thank you for the response. Attached you can see what I am talking about. The wire is hanging out and if you are driving the wind will make this flap especially on the freeway. There has to be a cleaner way of doing this and to prevent the wire from flapping around. I just cant believe that a system as much as it cost allows this to be flapping in the wind. Please see attachment and the red circled area. I hope the picture is clear enough.

Given that scenario I would run the wire up the A pillar and drop it out between the freedom panel and the windshield. Thats a pretty wonky looking bracket that hangs out that far.

If there is space, you can run the wire between the A-pillar and the bracket. You can also get a flat/oval type cable that will make that easier. Most auto parts stores will carry it.


If you are still having problems, get with a local Jeep Club. There's a lot of knowledge to be shared....
