Looks great!

If I get a chance this weekend I will do some testing with a location to run wires and report back my findings. I don't have the bar, and now that I see it on yours with those lights, I want one more.

i did a quick look...it seems like the best route would be to drill a hole right above the sunglasses holder. i can then snake the wires to the drivers a-pillar and then down. shouldn't have to do much disassembly. (knock on wood) this way the only things i'm takin apart is the a-pillar and lower console and not the whole headliner

this is exactly how most of the xterra's do it. it's pretty easy to fish the wires thru the headliner w/o pulling the whole thing down. Some have also drilled up thru the roof under the rack feet, then ran the wires thru the tubes of the rack.

well i finally did the wiring for the lights. took me about 5 hrs start to finish. only thing left is to actually mount the switches. two things. if u've never taken off the sunglasses holder. u pull the the back down and then slide fwd...i ended up breakin the tabs in the back and had to use some safety wire to secure it back it....can't see unless u really look so i don't care. also be careful if using a hole saw cuz if u drill wrong size whole, its kinda a PITA to enlarge it sine u have no pilot hole anymore. sorry for the shittty pics. i had brought my camera but didn't realize it was dead so i used my crackberry. install is pretty straight fwd if u've done any kinda wiring. special tools needed are a "myers hub" which is a water tight connection. i used a 1" hub. i also bought some special heatshrink tubing to go over it that has an adhesive inside thats also waterproof to shrink around the wires. afterwards i wrapped electric tape around the wires to make em look pretty. gonna add a bead of silicone wheni get a chance just for further insurance...u might need some touch up paint if u mess up. i used the red and whit wire on the BCM (third from the right on the lower row) as the the power signal so that the lights will only work when the keys are on and turned to ACC.

I would have suggested to do it like I did mine a long time ago...I ran my wiring down to one side. I removed the front mount of the roof rack and drilled a hole underneath. I then drilled a hole in the side of the front mount to run the wiring. I ran all the wiring in the cab first and back out the top holes and then connected the lights. As long as it is all sealed, you are good.
