Creative Minds Needed!

Hey guys I am currently working on a make-shift hi-lift/maxtrax/rear back up light mount on my stock tired carrier. I have almost figured everything out except the lighting. I already have a power line ran to the back for old lights I had on my roof but I removed the roof rack and need a new place to mount them. My main question is how to I neatly run a wire out there with out the wire showing or making a mess. Any input would be overly appreciated, ive been pondering this for days and have found my self stuck in a rut.

thanks Joe

Re: Creative Minds Needed!

Run wire through door. Drill a hole through a bolt that holds tire carrier on and run Eire through hollowed bolt. Silicone wires into bolt.

I've never had mine apart but atleast this way you can always replace bolt and it would cove hole.

You need to put the bolt on a drill press and hollow out the center of bolt.. I have some titanium hollowed out bolts that I will try and post a pic later when I get home.

Re: Creative Minds Needed!

Here is a hollowed out titanium bolt


Run wire through bolt and into rear door.

Re: Creative Minds Needed!

you could just run it into the door using the existing wiring as a way in and then drill a hole in the door and grommet it.
there is already wiring running to rear wiper and lock inside the rear door. use that loom as your access point and then route it to where you need it.
