Running wires

I just picked up some reverse flood lights that i got from trent and am wondering if someone can post up a pic of their firewall so i can see exactly where i need to run my wires into the cab.

Also is it fairly easy to bust through? i had an old 94 Buick and it was easy...but that was cause the grommet was so old haha.

One more thing, i tried searching for it but i know ive seen it too. How do i get the cup holders off of the floor in my cab. Ive got the basic cup holder thing that goes right underneath the dash on the tranny hump.

Keep in mind i havent bothered looking lazy hahahaha

I'm curious about the wiring as well. Although I do know that there is a grommet down by the pedals on the firewall that a wire can be run through. As for the cupholders, there should be a little rubber pad in the bottom. Pull that up and use a flat head screwdriver to turn the little screw under there. Shouldn't be more than a quarter or half turn under each cup holder and the console should pop out.

The easiest thing is to just drill a hole. I took my fuse box out and just drilled a hole right behind that and but a grommet in it. You can also run wires thru the steering shaft grommet. For the cupholders there should be 2 little inserts in the bottom, just pull those out and theres screws under those.

I used a quarter from inside the truck to turn them each 1/4 of a turn.
