    I have a 2013 double cab tacoma with the factory roof rack. I have found mounts to mount a 40" led lightbar I have to the front crossbar. The only question I have is where can I run the wires ??? I've seen people use the hole the rack mounts to but I can't use that obviously because the rack is bolted up there. I've seen through the door and into the a pillar, I don't like this because frankly it looks lazy and half assed. I've heard you can run it down the inside of the windshield weather stripping but not entirely sure how this works. WILL NOT drill a hole....period . Any other ideas guys ? This will be accompanying my new hood mounted LEDs , thanks to Famous Fabrication (dwreck).

    I mounted mine and ran the wires under the windshield weather strip. Had to hold it open with a credit card, make sure the wires are not twisted (right on top of one another) and used a pic with a flat end to push them under. You can't see the wires at all. It takes time but worth it
