    There's a rubber grommet for the wires going down to the transfer case under the driver's seat. I ran mine from the bed, down along the framerail ziptied on the inside through the grommet into the cab.

  9. Another believer! Haha. It's the easiest way, and since I have my rockers painted black you can't really notice them unless you're looking for em.

    +1 for the grommet under the floor pan, also I added a glob of black RTV just in case.

    You dont have to cut any holes...?

    Run the wire under the floor to the dash and bring it up to the CB...doesnt take a rocket scientist bro! :thumbsup:

    Too late now, but I removed my engine bay fuse box, drilled a 1" hole, installed a 3/4" hole grommet, and ran my wires through there. Back before I did this, I ran my accessory wiring through the steering grommet.....until one came in contact with the shaft...
