    Gday there,
    Whats the common way for most people to run the lightbar wire into the car?
    Ive already sorted the other wire from the battery and relay ect.. just need to know the best entry point for the wire from lightbar itself.
    Do people drill through the roof or is there a better way?
    Ive got a 105 series Landcruiser
    Any tips? cheers.

    I ran mine under a door ribber / front bar clamp, then under windscreen trim to back edge of bonnet, and under that to the engine bay / firewall.
    A nice grommet to go through to the cabin and done.
    All wiring went through a small conduit.

    Think with the 105 you can run it along the roof and in the grommet for the back door, especially if you have a roof rack to hide the wiring.

    It really depends on how much you value your roof. I've been doing some research into the same thing recently and found some people drill on the inner edge of the roof, run up along the roof liner and down the A pillar.

    When you figure it out please let me know which option you went with!

    I've heard of people drilling into the back of their snorkel fitting a rubber bung or use silicon and running it down the inside that would be handy if you have one.

    @Deano987 . On my 105 series I used twin core flex 6 mm2 wire inside a 10mm id convoluted tubing . Wire then past thur big grommet on fire wall near brake booster. Tubing tucks it along windscreen trim. IMG20181205080522.jpg
