I want to run wires from these mounted light pods into the bed. I have a power source I can tap into inside the bed where I already have my compressor installed. I was thinking about running the wire harness along the bed bar down the side bracket and through the t-slot channel on my retrax cover either at the tailgate or forward to the front of the bar where I can access it through the drain holes.

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a better method to handle wiring these up. I'm not opposed to drilling a hole with a grommet but I'm not sure there's really a feasible area to do that and I'd prefer not to drill into the bed or bed cover if there's an alternative.

If I can't find a clean solution for this, I'll probably relocate these to the rear bumper.
