Have a plastic roof too

I want to put a big LED light bar on my new Ranger. Problem is I don't know the best way to mount and hide the wires from the light down to the front of the UTV. I have factory glass windshield. Any ideas? If you have pictures it would be great!
Some folks drill the ROPS above the pillar bungs and fish the wire out in the corner where your dash meets the cage. Not entirely recommended as it weakens the structure.
Using some of the screw bosses in the roof, feed the wire through a few cable clamps fastened to the screw bosses and route to the center of the rig. Tape the wire to the cage B pillar on the inside, down through the B pillar cover, under the front seats and into the umbilical tunnel to dash.
Get on line and order Polaris guide harness part# 5414966 from (I recommend Partshark.com). This is the factory Polaris solution for hiding the wiper/washer tube and harness. It's clean. I have 2, one for wiper/washer and one for speakers/interior lights/light bars and anything else. It's around $25. the picture is difficult to see as it blends well.

I went with the Rough Country single row 50" curved. The light pattern is AWESOME for a Ranger (where you are not going eleventy thousand miles an hour) in the woods, around the house, etc. It is wide, full, and even. Although the color temp is a bit blue like the cheap bars are. I only notice it against a Rigid, which puts out a more usable, more friendly warmer white color. I like the slim look of single row bars. And the brightness is very similar to a dual row bar because the LEDs are 5W each instead of 3W, making this bar 240 watts vs the mare traditional 288 watts for a double row of the same length.

I skimped a bit on the mounting, but it is working quite well. No vibes, sits below roof line, easy wire routing, easily adjustable up/down, and easily removable. Also cheated by using Wetsounds Stealth sound bar mounts
Here's a crappy video I randomly recorded while heading to a neighbor's house for drinks that is sorta kinda a good demo of the bar. Its brighter is person because cameras in phones tend to have center weighted metering.
Thanks for the info guys! I love the idea of the guide harness Battle Born, that is exactly what I was looking for!
Todd, is that a 20" light bar on the front?
Yes, it is a 20" Rigid SR2 in driving pattern. Probably not worth the cash but is an exceptional piece of hardware.
