Good place to tap into VSS wire

Hey,
Where is a good place to tap into the VSS (Vehicle speed sensor) wire? I understand it is gray and black, pin 58 on the PCM, but it is tightly bundled, anyone tapped it somewhere else?

Thanks for the help

Pull the airbox and you will find it under there.

*Edit
I was able to get VSS from the factory radio wiring harness in my 02 Excursion.

I'll have to double check which pin but it was there.

Yeah, for me there are 2 harnesses that go to the back of factory radio. 1 for speakers and power and the other ... It is that one (the none speaker one) that has the VSS a grey/black wire, pin #9. I've been using it for my Avic.

the other option is pin 58 on the pcm also a gray/back wire (not a fun bundle to pick).
