Amp power wire....

Sorry if this has been asked a bajillion times but I was wondering where you guys ran the power wire for your amp through the firewall. I didn't see any place clear enough to drill a hole, and couldn't find an existing gromet to slide the wire through. I have an 02 3.0 reg cab. Thanks guys.

The grommet through the firewall is an easy spot. I think it's the speedo cable that runs through it. It's on the driver's side in plain sight.

I think I know what one your talking about. I wasn't sure what that was and didn't want to disturb anything and risk messing the truck up while its still under warrenty. thanks.

I think some people have drilled above the brake booster on the driver's side. I saw a picture of it somewhere but I can't remember where for the life of me right now... sorry!

I just cut a small hole through it and ran my amp power wire through there. Then you can put the grommet back and it will be water tight again.

there was some little metal shaft thing sticking through a hole in my firewall right around that area, so I just removed that and stuck the + wire where that used to be. Works A+++




ps does anyone know why my steering isn't responding?
