    Issue: Trying to wire light bar to upfitter switches...

    I have the instructions for:
    - utilizing the upfitter switches
    - removing headliner to install roof clearance lights

    Do I need to know anything else?

    How do I run from the roof to underneath the steering column?

    I would sugest that you run ur wire down ur "A" piler. I ran mine down the "B" piler & under my seat due to my switch panel is over the tranny hump in a custom box I built. Good luck on ur project

    Do you happen to have a copy of the service manual?

    Do I have to remove the edge of the dash or can I feed it to the column via the A pillar?

    Thanks!

    Do you mean remove the driver side knee kick panel?

    Yes, this will be a permanent install...

    My concern is how will I run the wires through the A pillar to the kick panel.
