Garage Wiring

the residential garage has 2x4 construction all over,no type of wall or ceiling plans to cover. at the end of rafters/on top is where i plan to run my branch circuits.the trusses are 2` on centers,Am i allowed to just place the wires in this V area and have them sit on top of joist/ truss? If there ever was to be storage overhead it would just be in the middle/peak area.I usually drill, But these are only 2x4 and it would not look appropriate,,Thankyou!

You are right, you don't drill trusses. You should run these wires on running boards if there is any chance of damage.

What you are planning is fine, if I understand you correctly. Remember that the romex must be secured to the structure (Read cable staples) every 4 ft minimum in an attic space. I would suggest PVC conduit and boxes up to just above the bottom of the truss bottoms. Remember also that any garage circuits must be GFCI protected.
