    I installed a CaliRasied roof rack on my '22 ORP yesterday but got stuck when I can't find wiring instructions. I'm disappointed CaliRaised doesn't seem to have these. I'm a noob and follow instructions step-by-step.

    I've searched forums and Youtube for instructions, but haven't found what I'm looking for. I also reached out to CaliRaised, but they're closed on weekends.

    Honestly, I'm not sure how to pack the cord down the driver's side of the windshield.

    Can anyone point me to instructions, or describe how that cable fits into the column next to the windshield?

    Nearly everyone will go down one of two roads:
    1. grab a plastic trim remover tool and GENTLY pry up the very edge of the driver side window trim piece (thats literally on the glass) and also GENTLY push the wire into there, should be just enough space for it to hide, and then make a small cut into the plastic piece that resides between the rear edge of your hood and the window for the wire to pass through into the engine bay, or
    2. buy one of these (https://www.kchilites.com/universal-wire-hider-kc-6300.html), install on the drivers side, and do the exact same thing stuffing the wire into the channel and routing into the engine bay

    Now of course you can go ahead and drill through the roof just for the wire, like a savage... but that's not really recommended
