Running power lead from back to upfitter leads in engine compartment.

Running a lead from a set of rear LEDs to an upfitter switch. What's the best routing option to get the lead into the engine compartment?

Thanks in advance.

There is a harness already running from the engine bay to the rear of your truck along the driver's side frame rail. Just follow the path it took to get there. That is what I did when I put in my LED reverse lamps. As a side note to help you that I did not think of until a week or two after I completed my install was that I ran straight from my upfitter to the lights. I am going back and putting a connector in at the break between the cab and the bed so if I ever need to lift the cab I just need to undo the connector and then at the rear so if I ever need to pull the bumper I just disconnect at that connector as well. Best of luck to you.

Thanks for the reply. Where did you ground the lights?

If I remember correctly I loosened a bolt holding my trailer outlet to the frame and connected the ground there as it was close to the first light. I installed a pair of 7inch LED fog/work lights. They work great.
