wiring question

Ok this may be a dumb question but here it goes...I decided to buy the Rugged Ridge light bar that runs above the windsheild with 5 Hella lights to go on it above the windsheild...I see the light bar comes with little holes where you run the wires from each light into the bar up there where the light mounts....How on earth do you do all the splicing and connections and shove them in the little holes OR do you do the splicing on the outside and leave it???

I'm assuming the lights themselves just have two tails on the back of them and have to be sliced...I'm an electician by trade but car wiring is a whole different ball game so don't laugh at me..

Anyone with some pictures or comments on how this will work let me know. Thanks....Remember if i'm not seeing something simple here don't make fun because someday you may want my help on somthing and you wouldn't want me to laugh at you would you??? Thanks.....

Can you run individual wires through the bar. From the lights down to the end then splice them together. I would also use a relay.

Oh i'll be using relays but it's the splicing part that there must be a trick on...I can't believe that the splicing will have to go up by the lights on the outside of the tube???? plus I'm running 1 ground wire for all 5 lights and they will have to be spliced...I'm hoping someone has wired a light bar so I can see how they spliced all that wiring into the bar up by the lights..
