where to run wire???

im putting my system into the ranger now its an 04 supercab vinyl not carpet.
Sofar from what ive run into the 4awg and my rca's/ speaker wire for the 2 amps are not gonna fit running along by the door sills. And it seems like my only 3 other options is through the center under the vinyl which i think imo would look retarded cause it would bulge out
along the top by the roof and back down the side to the back or under the truck hugging the frame n crap, which would be hecka retarded.

what did everyone else do that doesn't have carpet and no room under the side rail thing-O???

There is a large wire harness along the left side of the transmission tunnel under the mat/carpet. You can add some more wiring there with the original bundle.

I forget where I ran it, but it was under the vinyl carpet. If I can run 0 gauge wire and forget where I ran it, then you should be able to put 4 AWG under there without noticing. It's very easy if you take out the sill and the seat. Just be sure not to run anything close to the seat rails, as they may pinch the wire.

i have vinyl flooring as well, and i ran 0 gauge right down the side of the center hub, you dont notice it at all. your 4 gauge will fit there nicely.

I keep telling myself that one of these days, I am going to install PVC wire conduit with a weatherhead from under the dashboard to the back of the extended cab. That would be the ultimate in overdoing it but it would make things SO easy.
