There are plenty of places on the fire wall. Just look for one of the rubber plugs. Poke a hole in it with a knife and then run the wire through it.

If you have a 6 spd it will be a little tougher. There are still some holes in the firewall, but they are a little harder to get stuff through. I ended up making my own hole with a hole saw in my old truck since I had so much stuff running and no good holes.

If you have an auto, there is a large hole in the upper corner of the firewall on the driver's side.

If you have an auto, look to the left of the steering pump on the firewall - you will see a rubber grommet about 1.5" tall and about .5" wide - shaped like a diamond. Poke a hold in the grommet, feed the cable through, then if you want use high-temp silicone to seal it back up.

You will need to peel back some carpet in the cab to find the cable you feed - it's best to poke a screwdriver through from the engine side, then locate the screwdriver from the cab to know where to take down the carpet.
