Fog lights on xuv 560

I am installing two fog lights on the brush guard of my 560. Any tips on a good location under dash to connect the hot & ground wires? I prefer not to run wires all the way to the battery if I don't have to.

PS ..... I already have the wiring run from the lights to a new rocker switch, just don't have power & ground source yet.

I would recommend running one ground wire to the battery with a ground buss bar in a convenient location for future accessories.

Thanks, Bradhill. I will see about that. Not sure of best route to the battery unless I try to route through the ops tube. I looked at trying to route underneath but did not find a good path. I f I am able to route the ground, I may as well run the hot to the battery also, I suppose.

I ended up routing the positive and negative wires through the passenger side of the ops tube which opens right above the battery. Worked out really well. I found a MICTUNING MIC-LSS1 5Pin Laser Spot Lights Rocker Switch on Amazon for $9.19 that fit the opening in the dash perfectly. Sorry for the orientation of the switches picture!!!!
