Rock Lights' and Frame Wiring

Finally getting around to doing some rock lights on the jeep, but I've run into a bit of a snag. I'm looking under the jeep, and there are no obvious, nor clean ways seemingly to run the wires from the back of the jeep, to the front and too the sPod. I don't particularly want to just thread the wires through the frame, but drilling some hardware into the frame is isn't appealing either.

What are some solutions you guys have come up with for this?

Pictures would be great if you have them.

And sometimes that's all that matters if you have a bad day on the trail!

Through the firewall, under the door sill plates, & along the wiring harness to a tail light is one safe routing option.

Drop through to the underside in the back corner where the tail light wiring drops through a grommet, then split off as needed.
I have an OBA line that goes along the top of the passenger frame rail to 2 tanks in the back, but most of my wiring's inside.

I know you said you don't want to thread it thru the frame but it only took me 5 minutes to run my rear locker wire with an electrician snake thingamajig.

I even ran and extra string just in case I need to run something else in the future. And if I do ill just add another string line for the next potential need

Frame will be easier, but running it through the existing wiring harness is the better option
