This topic has been talked about several times in the past so I apologize be bringing it up again. I am not asking whether or not I should run wires through the cage. I would like to hear from people that have done it and hear/see how you did it. Pictures would be a plus. I am installing a ProBox Top on my '15 Ranger Diesel single cab (same cab as the 900XP) and I would prefer to run the wires through the roll cage down to the battery. The power cable from the top comes down on the passengers side rear corner of the top. If anyone has any pictures of their installation that they are willing to share I would greatly appreciate it. I don't want to start drilling holes in the cage and find out I can't get the wires through.

That is a clean install. Nice job Slim.

I don't have any pics, but the easiest way I've found to run wires is to use air and blow a string through the cage once you have your holes drilled. Just shoot air into the hole you're feeding the string through and it will bring the string out the other (exhaust) hole. Then use the string to pull your wires.

...or if you don't have a compressor, hold a vacuum hose against the outlet hole for the same result!

I did mine the same as the guys above mentioned with the string. It's kinda a pain, but finally got it to work. On the 900 roll cage, there are a couple places that are not hollow, so you just have to go around those parts.

Very Nice and Clean Install Slim. Where did you get the nice rubber grommets for inside the holes? Wouldn't mind getting those if I need to do this type of install.

I found some tonight at Lowes. I'm sure any hardware store would have them.

Thanks for the tips and photos. Much appreciated. Hopefully I will have time to tackle this project this weekend.

Tractor supply is also a good source for rubber grommets. They also have lots of other goodies and a good selection of stainless steel bolts and screws.

I usually order stuff like that from McMaster-Carr - extremely fast shipping and good prices and a phenomenal selection!
