run them down the b-pillar behind the trim behind the seat belt, under the rocker sill and thru a grommet under the hood. maybe use a pigtail connector so that you can unplug the whole rig if you ever had to remove the roof rack. you could just ground the lights locally to the rack or the body of the car.

Curious as to how you mounted the lights on your basket. My frame of the basket is too thin to drill through and fit the bolt. Pictures of how you or others mounted ?

I don't have any pics up close, but they are drilled down through the top tube on the basket, then longer bolts with washers. The metal was pretty thin on mine too, but with them tightened down well, they are nice and secure. The tires are 27x8.50x14 Grabbers. Thanks!
