    Ah, so you rolled up the harness and left the connector up top.

    I ran the wire by the windshield trim. There is just enough to run it down and tuck it against the windshield. I unfortunately bought the uptop overland thinfin and harness but missed where it said it doesnt work for 2020s, thankfully micah and frank helped me out and are even refunding me once the receive the unused items. These are some pics of how i ran it. I have them hooked up to an 8gang auxbeam switch panel. I couldnt find it to spend the $550 for a switch pro as i dnt do anything heavy duty. I also have the side pods that will be hooked up once i learn how to make a harness for it. So far its looking good.

    I ran a lot of the slack behind the waterproof molding for a just in case in the future.

    nice work! It takes time but the end product is well worth it. As for your pod lights, I ran the drivers side black/red wires through the center of the the racks load bar to the passenger side. One through the front load bar and one through a back load bar. You will have to unbolt them from the outside frame to get access to the center hole I’m talking about. Once you have them ran to the passenger side, tie those into the passenger pods and then run your wiring down the passenger side of the windshield just like you did for your lightbar on the drivers side. Your pod lights pull such low power, tying them together is no issue at all. Easy peasy! You already have done the worst of it :thumbsup::cheers:

    Bro so that was my first choice, but then saw of someone who ran it on driverside windshield molding betwen the frame and the molding... im very unsure of where to do it... also what kind of wire didnu use? Im waiting on 22awg....
    Right nowni have the white leds connected to the 30amp, the amber to the 20amp and will connect left and right pods separate(for now) probably on the 5amp each.
    And thanks man it did take a bit to grab the courage to do this. My second wiring job lol. First was hood and bed lights and i messed up big time. Didnt pay attention to packaging and when i went replaced it i cut thr power cable too short. So im waiting onba spool of 100ft foe those and scene pod wiring lol

    I didn’t have room to run it along the drivers side with my light bar wiring running down both channels for the windshield on that side. But I also went with 12awg for the lightbar, so it took up more room. I ran two of the light bar wires between the windshield and the body and the single between the windshield channel and the windshield. I also had built my own harness, it looks like you ran your whole light bar factory harness down the channel. for my pods I used 14awg. I have a tendency to overdue things though. No matter which side you decide to run down the windshield on you will need to run the opposite side over to it...so I vote run it over to the passenger side and down the windshield. Then you won’t be fighting your wire that’s already ran down the drivers side. But that’s just me. Your truck, you make the decision lol. It looks great man, take your time and keep it up. A lot of people rush through these projects and regret it later when they are chasing down electrical gremlins. You got this :yay:

    In your 4th picture, you have a wire that is connect to the side of the Blue Sea fuse box where the fuses sits and also a wire close to the 10 gauge negative wire on the Blue Sea fuse box. What are those wires for and their purpose?

    Those are power and ground for my dash cam if I am understanding the wires you are referring to correctly. I wanted a “constant on” for the cam In case my truck gets hit in the parking lot or while not attended. The cam has a built in off when there is no movement, but will auto turn on when connected to a “constant on”.

    Made my own bracket for the universal light bar fairing. Sits just a bit lower than the front load bar so I can what ever I load on the rack, it won't sit on the light bar.

    My buddy has an OEM snorkel. I assume that's the desert air intake that is mentioned as being incompatible with these racks? Are there options to make the two compatible somehow? Or would he have to use a different snorkel?

    Anything is possible with enough ingenuity and maybe a saw. Maybe you can just cut it shorter before it bends at the top and find a good way to plastic weld it / glue it back or something.

    UpTop is coming out with a snorkel soon. I know that doesn’t help your buddy much.
