Honda Fit wiring kits

Obviously from my posts and questions you can tell that I have not done this before.
What I am thinking about today is wiring my Honda Fit, getting it ready to tow. I have been looking at wiring kits and a lot of them have a cable that runs from the front of the car to the back and then requires a hole drilled into the taillight assembly and a socket and bulb inserted in the hole.
Other kits have a diodes but the cable is still ran to the back of the car where the cable is spliced into the taillight wiring
So what I am thinking is, all the original wiring that goes to the back of the car starts in the front. Why can't the new wiring and diodes be spliced in some place in the front of the car? Wouldn't the front turn signal etc be wired to the back, same wire?

I used a kit that had the wire diodes. It was a simple install. Unplug existing connector, plug new harness in and old plugs back in also. Then route wires to the front.
Required no splicing or messing with the existing wiring. Trying to splice in on the front side sounds very messy and prone to creating other problems.
