Hey all here are a few photos of my light install, I put on 4 Hella 500FF's. Not sure if anyone has done this install like this but might as well put it up, who knows it may serve as inspiration to someone to do it.
I installed all the relays that came with the lights in the upper console along with the switches, made it to where I could either have the outer two on or the inner two on seperate from one another, or just have all of them on.
ran the wires between the headliner and the roof, down behind the passenger side pillar fascia and into the engine bay. then from there they went up through the metal clip on the side of the windshield up to the stock roof rack mounts. my "light bar on a budget'' but never the less it works great. all wires are covered in wire loom and will soon be soldered at every connection to assure connectivity. let me know what you all think. thanks for looking; any other questions feel free to ask.
I don't have the Hella's but I basically have the same set up, with my switches on the ceiling console .. 4 round 100w lights, 1 switch for the outer 2, 1 switch for the inner 2 ..and a 3rd switch for 2 rear facing lights as well.

Got any pics of your switches installed within the console? Would like to see how that looks!
yes I will get those taken and put up for you. thanks for the replies everyone. I really like the way it is set up.. no big rats nest of wires under the dash to deal with hanging down and getting my feet caught on. will also get pics of the lights from the front as well.
I did the same with Baja's from Wal-Mart, but put the switches down in the center console between the seats. One switch for the outer two, one for the inner two, and one for the backward facing lights.
Nice install! I'd like to switch out my Baja's for some brighter lights eventually...
Did you go thru the roof for power to the lights or do you have a wire loom that cant be seen from the roof rack to the door pillar?
I ran it all in wire loom, there is a metal channel that has four screws in it on the side of the windshield, kinda like a clamp almost, I ran the wires through there and then intothe loom up to the lights. I can take pics if needed to show what I did.
Oh and I forgot to mention that the picture with the lights installed in the garage are before all wiring was done, I just snapped the pic to send to my friends to get input from them, there is loom covering everything up now
