Underbody lights?

ok, i recently got a set of four 48in LED tubes and three 36in tubes. i mounted two 48's right to the frame under the doors, but i cant figure out where to put wires through the firewall into the cab. i really really dont want to drill at this point and i'd like to stick the switch for power and patterns in my glove compartment. I have a 2000 Ford Ranger Supercab with the 4.0 V6. if anyone has any tips or tricks they can offer please post them. thanks

Steve

They come with self-tapping screws and clamps. Or the ones i've seen did.

go under your dash, and fallow the cable to pop your hood. it should be right above the stering link to the right a little. thats where i went in. your going to have to pop the rubber piece out, run the wire and pop the rubber piece back in. I would get a pic for you but my parents have the camera in vegas with them.

Look for a fuse that already has power.
i think 21 has power to it, but im not sure, im not by my truck right now.
Make sure if you want power going to it even with the key off, that you connect it to a fuse with power when the key is off.
