Where to Route Wire to Rear

On my 79 CJ5, the tub was replaced with fiberglass by the previous owner. The wiring to the rear runs along the drivers side along to the corner to the rear. Is this the correct routing as original? I didn't know if it is supposed to run along the underside of the body or frame to the rear. Thanks

It should run within the lip at the top edge of the tub side on the drivers side. Sounds like it's correct.

I've got a 4wd glass body. On mine, and there's a double wall running inside the tub under the doors and along the lip of the tub. I put the wiring in the wire loom and used the plastic clamps to hold it along the underside of the door then up along the lip of the tub to the back.
