The firewalls on these 6.5 are pretty jammed packed. I remember hearing about a cover under the back seat that a few people ran cables through. I just don't want to put any holes in my cab.

I put mine through a hole in the floor beneath the drivers foot area. I replace the rubber plug with a grommet and siliconed around the wire. My feet don't rest there while driving so I have no worries of chafing the wire.

Would you mind sharing some pics of this plug you found? Others have mentioned it, Im still not seeing it. Or you just drilled a hole and Im not catching on to that fact...either way pics would be awesome. THx !!

Someone on here did a pretty sick install, mounting the antenna on the drivers side, just behind to the engine hood, opposite the stock radio antenna. I'll let ya know if I can find the post.

Sorry... no luck finding it.

I ran my power, coax, gauge wires and any other wire that may need to be fed threw the firewall threw the clutch master cylinder hole. If you pull the carpeting back up behind the parking break pedal you should be able to see the tape they have over the hole, or maybe see it from the engine bay, can't rember which is eaiser to see. It will be to the outside of the brake master cylinder.
