Winch wiring question

Has anyone installed the WARN VRX 45 on their KRX? Bought one yesterday, installed the winch, ran the winch wires through the provided tube to the battery box. Mounted the contactor and have all the wires attached to it. Now the question. How do you get the switch/remote control wires from the battery box to up behind the dash??? With all the thought and design Kawasaki put into the mounting kit and the tube from the winch to battery box, I was surprised there is no tubing to run wires from the battery box to the dash. (or maybe there is, and I'm too blind to find it) Any help and/or photos would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I'm sure by now you've already done something. I pulled the tube toward the front of the vehicle 3 or 4 inches and drilled a hole in it before running any wires through it. I ran the winch wires and the control wires through from the battery end at the same time and pulled the control wires through the hole with needle-nose pliers when I could reach them. This is quite difficult, but the result is keeping the control wires a little more protected than running them out through the tube and then running them back to the inside of the cab through the hole that is shown on the instructions. I never found that hole anyway. I'll try to post a pic if somebody should want it, but I don't think it's necessary.

I just ran the wires up through the same tube, then through the opening in the firewall. I did put my own protective sleeve on the wires before running them through the firewall. Protected from the big tube all the way to the remote plug-in in the glove box.
