now under the lil cup holder thingy..there is a metal galvinzed plate..theres like 4 bolts on it ive heard from some people that its right under the tranny so if my truck was stick that would just remove that plate....SO if that is true all im gunna do is pop a hole in it for my 1/4" air hose then get a rubber grommet (sp?) for that...would that be a ground too...
The brown wire by the light switch will turn stuff on with the gauges. Or, tap into the radios dimmer switch.
For CB's and other static sensative stuff, it's usually best to run right from the battery or an auxillary block. Or, tap into an unused fuse if necessary.
Under the floor console is carpet/rubber with the turret sticking out. The metal plate covers a control unit. I wouldn't drill around that area, as the tranny is right underneath.
