Need help rewiring headlight

So i have a short in the wiring for my drive side headlight so i would like to re-run the wires to get power back to the headlight (essentially replace the shorted wire). Where would i need to run the wire to? Its a 2000 Ford f250 superduty crew cab.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Well to do it right, you should run the replacement wire through the wiring harness/loom. So start unzipping the plastic loom and trace the wire back.
