Christmas Light mounting

I'd like to get some christmas lights on the TJ this year. What is recommended for mounting the lights to the body of the jeep? I just searched google for quite a bit and couldnt find any mounting tips.

Zip ties will work for some parts but what is used to mount to the hood, around the windshield, doors and rear frame?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have your top on the jeep? I have a soft top on, thats the part I need to figure out still. I've got lights around the base of the jeep (need one more strand of LED lights). I'd like to get some on the top though. I got a 24in wreath for the grill too.

I'll take some pictures tomorrow night after I get the base finished.

Any idea's on securing to the soft top?

You could so something like spyder6 did and wrap lights around your spare tire.

The palm tree was a nice touch. BTW, I miss the boat parade down
there. We used to watch it every year when we lived in Pompano.

When we do right, no one remembers. When we do wrong, no one forgets.

A couple of years ago I did this and just used duct tape to attach the lights. Some of the adhesive stayed when I took them off but it came off with the next good wash.

Just a piece of advice, unless you're planning on participating in some organized parade or cruise, I'd skip on lighting up your Jeep. Most states would consider this illegal auxiliary lighting and you may find yourself in a bit of trouble if you have a run in with an overzealous police officer.
