So I am installing my mopar slush mats, no issues on the drivers side. When I get to the passenger side and go to remove the plug I notice this wires coming out of there. Is this normal?

Nope. Not normal at all. There's a reason the drain plugs are on a Wrangler. Those wires defeat the purpose. Trace the wires and see where they go. I bet it's a dealer installed piece of crap.

Not normal at all. That's definitely not something fitted at the factory, not only because there's no wires that should come through there on a stock JL, but that's also not factory wiring.

Do you have the rock slide engineering steps? Thought I read their install instructions have you run the wiring through the passenger floor drain plug just like that.

I had the amp research steps installed at 4 wheel parts. I am going to trace the wires when I get home. If they did that I’ll be calling them tomorrow

Wow, 4WP probably did that (which doesn't surprise me). LMAO.

Yup - that's AMP Research PowerSteps wiring. I did some research before having mine installed - that's how it's done.

@Fuser

When you talk to the "4 wheel parts", tread lightly with them so to speak. They in reality did nothing wrong. Instructions say install that way and that is what they did.

You did not specify / give instructions to do otherwise so....

Reality is, the install is ok as it is.

YES, there are other far cleaner ways the install could have been done.... but that apparently is the way the product instructions say to do the install.

I know I would not have done it that way.... Yes, it would be an easy chore for you to reroute/install differently.

I installed my Amp's and did the same. I didn't want to make a new hole.

Why wouldn't the install be to head up under the passenger inner fender liner and into the engine bay? Plenty of power options there.

It's much harder to route wires that way.
