    So i'm about to pick up a "Back-Rack" headache rack for my truck today (100 bucks on craigslist), and have a couple questions i'm hoping somoene with experience can guide me on...

    1. I have a set of Hella off road lights that i'd like to mount on it facing to the back to light up the bed and other stuff, this will prob be the easiest of my questions, but where would i run the wire for them? i know where i can and cant tap into to get power, but i want to run it so its not hanging around and looking like shit, i will prob drill some holes in the rack and run the wire thru the rack to the lights but to get from the rack to inside the cab i have no idea how to do, is there already a hole in the back of the cab somewhere that other wires go thru like the one in the firewall?

    2. i want to wire up some red LED lights to come on WITH the tail lights, break lights, and turn signals. where is the best location to tap into for that? and i think it will be easier to run wires for these..

    any help would be awesome!
