Where did you run the wires to your light bar?

    I just got a Westin Prerunner light bar off ebay:

    http://compare.ebay.com/like/280531...ff58db8&itemid=280531879704&ff4=263602_324952

    The light bar attaches through the lower grille. I'm using 2 Hell 500's. Where should I run the wiring for the cleanest look? Would the wires be zip tied to the light bar and run through the lower grille or do they run through the upper grille? Any ideas or pictures would be greatly appreciated. I also need info on wiring these lights up to a switch...but I'll search for that as I'm sure it has been posted a bunch.

    Thanks!

    Put 'em where ever you think is best.

    I can't remember exactly, but mine are ty-wrapped & wrapped with black electrical tape routed along the lower grill (behind the grill).

    You can't see anything unless you look closely. I can get picts tomorrow if needed.

    My buddy ran the wires through the top grill. You can still see the wires but it looks clean.
