I know some people run wires inside the chassis, but it's hard to prevent vibration-induced abrasion and potential shorts.

The wires in mine go through a small hole at the top of the light, down through the roll bar itself, through a hole in the bottom of the left roll bar mount plate, and into the trunk area, where it connects (2-pin connector) into the brake light wiring. I can unbolt the roll bar, lift it off, disconnect the connector, and separate the whole thing from the car without cutting the wires.
