Yup, remember that there are important things mounted on the interior side of that fire wall you don't want to drill through.

Its really easy, unbolt the fuse box and move it out of the way. Now you have a lot of metal behind that on the firewall with nothing behind it. Just drill a hole, stick in a grommet and your good to go.

If your just routing a couple wires...just slice a hole in your steering shaft boot and route through there...I still have my 4ga amp wire going through there.



No finished pics yet....but......this is a proper way to route wiring through a firewall.....

When I mounted the lights on my light bar I had wires running below the cab I tagged the interior wires off and ran them into the cab. There is a place that has a foam material that goes right in the driver's kick panel. I wire loomed everything and taped it so I know mine is okay.
