110 Roll Cage Foglight wiring

Im sure this in on here somewhere but i cant find it. Where do you guys run the roof mounted fog light wires on your trucks? I dont want to drill any holes in the roof. Do you run them thru the roll cage or somewhere else that Im not seeing?

I see lots of zip ties up there. If you're building this thing on spec, then why are you installing accessories?

Thanks Jim. What do you mean by building it on spec?

Sorry, I thought stmpede was posting. How's that for a brain cramp.

I guess no one wants to drill the cage (understandably) but if you run a snorkel or raised breathers you could bundle the wiring to disguise it a bit.

Ah no problem. Im fine with zip ties. The drilling a hole in the roof is what scared the hell out of me.

Run the wires through the cage... A small hole and some silicone would be best.

Except on the 110, the front part is not a "hoop" like it is on the 90. Instead it is two open-ended cross-pieces connecting uprights that go from the fender up and along the roofline. So you'd have to drill into and out of the upright and then out of the cross-piece where ever you wanted the wires to emerge - I don't think I'd want to drill my cage that many times.

It was looking like that was the best option.

Jim, aren't the 110 cages already drilled right near the 4 tabs from the factory? I don't know if the PO did that or it came like that, but judging from some of the other installs (and the fact that I don't think he ever had 4 lights mounted up there) I thought that was factory. I drilled a small hole on each side so I can run the wires through the vertical piece and they will come out and go straight into the end of the cross piece. I really hate visible wires though, so everything I have added is run through wiring looms that I created, and terminated with weatherpak connectors.

Mines not drilled. But that doesn't mean others aren't.
