Firewall Penetration

Alright, darn-it. I'm trying to wire some accessory driving lights and can't see where to penetrate the firewall and bring the switch into the cab. Jeep does a pretty good job of buttoning everything up.

I searched, here and under hood. Don't see anything. I know I'm overlooking the obvious.

Best point of entry?

Pull the end plate off each side of the dash, inside the door jamb. They just pop off. You'll see sprayed in foam in a hole in the aluminum dash frame. Stick a coat hanger through that to fish.

Thanks. I saw the foam. Didn't think about the antenna.
