Might want to run the wires with the "pass through" wires near the steering column that Ford provided for us. Easy access to your upfitters and then into the motor area and down to the frame rail back to the bed? Just a thought.

I am new, but the pass through by the steering column is pretty big, bigger than I thought when I looked for it. I just installed an amp and had to use it to access the battery.

There are "pass through wires" Ford put in for us to add stuff without digging in the firewall looking for ways to get to what ever the heck we are trying to wire. You will find 4 blunt ended wires under the dash near the steering column and they come out right near the power steering tank. I'd have to go look for sure, but it's raining!

Use them for what ever you want!
