Thanks for the write up and the pics. I will be doing this soon to my Cherokee. Do you have any pics of which rivnut you drilled through and how you routed the wiring down the pillars without interfering with the airbags?
What brand light bar did you go with, and where did you buy it? I plan to do a basket mount, but your wiring definitely looks like the way to go.There are 3 in the front and 2 in the back. The riv-nut I used was the very front one. It’s the only one that doesn’t have a bolt that runs through it.
As for the pillar wiring, I haven’t actually run the wiring yet. I ran out of time. I’m hoping to finish that up this weekend. But as far as airbag routing, just make sure it stays above the airbag, and don’t get the wires wrapped around it and you should be fine. I’ll get some additional pics this weekend if I can get it finished up. View attachment 211911
Thanks, I'm probably going to have a couple more small floods on the side, and possibly a couple more on the rear. I'm going with a similar multi switch setup that that fits nicely in the little cubby on the left that I saw on a different post.Glad my wiring can be an inspiration! The light bar is a Nilight 42” from Amazon. It was only about $70. Wiring harness sold separately. It’s cheap and Chinese, but had lots of positive reviews. Also, those few people that had issues got them immediately replaced by the company easily with no questions asked, so that’s nice.
