Strobes: power supply install

Hey guys just wondering where those of you with strobes have mounted the power supplies? I have an ext cab so it's different than my old chev where I put it behind the reg cab seat...

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

My truck is an extended cab as well. I mounted the powersupply in the floorboard, middle of the truck under the back seats.

Nice! what length wires did it take you guys to get to the front headlights? Would 9' do it?
And Barrie, did you run the wires through the driver's side floor trim? And where were the rear ones routed?

I was thinking mounting the PS under the mid bench seat, but somewhere in the back makes more sense

I want to say I bought 18' to 20' leads, I ran the front leads through a grommet in the firewall then under the plastic door sill plate. The rear ones I ran along the frame rail zip tied them to brake lines or electrical cables, the through a grommet in the back drivers side of the cab. I also ran the on/off wireing under the same plastic step plate. Hope this helps.

Thanks Barrie! That will help for sure. I've done it before just not on my "new truck". I'm trying to pick up a kit off ebay that I had on my truck before...they worked flawlessly and had not had any problems for over a year. Only thing is there's only 12 feet of cable for each head! Hope they can reach..
