There are several rubber boots on the driver's side you could use, or you could drill your own hole and use a rubber grommet and silicone to seal it.

I know this isn’t through the firewall BUT…
If you are thinking about drilling a hole, (which I thk is a good idea) think about running the wire under the cab, tucked away so it doesn’t get caught on anything.
Drill a hole on the rear of the cab and use a water tight connector, maybe even run the wire up through the floor.

I ran my Amateur Radio Power through the rear of the cab and never had a problem with interference with any electronics in the cab.


Just me thk’g out loud.
