There maybe a better option, I will later revise when I replace the lightbar with some Stedi driving lights.

Thanks i appreciate it.

This lightbar install has beaten me I’m afraid to say.

I decided I was going to run the switch wire through the passenger side firewall using the same grommet that I used for the UHF cable, but it would mean extending the length although that is a relatively easy job. The helpful pics of the driver side access using the bonnet release cable hole was in my opinion impossible for my big fat hands. I tried......

I spent a couple of hours attempting to source the drivers side headlight high beam plug to no avail and much cursing. This was my biggest stumbling block and I think I will now get it done at my local auto electrician.

For anyone not afraid to drop around $1000 on a set of quality spotlights you can't go past Narva's 215 LED's. They are ridiculously good!! I had Lightforce 240 HID's prior to that and I didn't think LED's would outperform HID's but boy was I wrong. The light is whiter, brighter, wider, longer, higher and instant. They turn night into day. The build quality is 2nd to none. I got mine for $440 each plus around $140 for the wiring harness. I can't recommend them highly enough.

You can also buy them as a kit from TJM (labelled as TJM Narva) that includes 2 lights, wiring harness and different coloured rings for $1100.

I used a coat hanger to feed the wire and poke through that grommit.

You could also run it up on the front inner fender and through the gromit in the door jem into the kick panel
