Those are the "cab pass through" wires...

they are made so if you need to run any wires through the firewall you wont need to... they are alread ran from the factory


the other end is under your feet behind/ next to the fuse panel

Gee, I'm really glad that this thread popped up before I finished running the wires for my pyrometer. Thank you!

if it's a standard probe the pyro wire can come into the cab at a better spot down by the accell pedal and u don't need to run the ground all the way into the cab as you probably know

plus the pass through wires are a biotch to access at the inside termination IMHO

I hooked up my extra set of fog lights and ran the power line using one of those wires to my switch inside my cab!
