2017 JKU Feeding a Wire Through Firewall?

Hey guys,

I'm wiring up a Rigid Industries 20" light bar to the front bumper, and I was wondering where the easiest place to come through the firewall is. The switch will most likely be on the driver's side somewhere within easy reach. Thanks for the help,



Chris

This should work for yours. Should be the same on the drivers side.

Awesome...thanks for sharing. I'm hoping there's one like that on the driver's side too.

I got the light bar wired up to the Rigid switch using their harness last night. The light output is pretty impressive for only a 20" bar.

Yep, I went through it on the driver's side under that side panel. It worked perfect. I put the switch just below the AC vent. The light on the switch is annoying bright, so I'll remove that from the switch for sure.

The JK has two easy access holes... that sounds bad.
