Wiring KC slimlights

Hey gang, I just installed a set of KC Slimlights on the JK windshield brackets, and I'm about to tackle the wiring. I'm looking to find out the best place to thread the wiring through the firewall into the cabin. I'm going to mount the relay on the little bolt one the firewall behind the battery, unless you guys can recommend a better location?

Thanks in advance.

I am doing the same thing, trying to figure out where on the firewall to bring them through.

Open the drivers side door.
Remove the plastic panel on the left side of the dash, facing the door.
Use a coat hanger and pierce the foam filled hole on the firewall.
Push the coat hanger all the way through to the engine compartment.
Tape wire to the coat hanger.
Pull the hanger back through the hole.
Drink a beer to celebrate.

The side dash panel will pop right off. The foam filled hole can be seen in this picture:

You can make a panel like this cheap and only have to run wires once . You then can add what you like very easily ...... just sayin'
