    Hello,

    Attached is a pic from the drivers side looking into the firewall of the truck. I need to run a coax antenna cable from the back bumper into the cab. Can anyone tell me if the rubber grommet in the center of the photo is a good option? I was thinking about drilling a small hole and then feeding the coax through. I could not find any other access points that looked this easy...if in fact this is an available spot. Thanks!!

    What about running it thru where the larger wire bundle goes thru, closer to the driver side? That comes out right above the fuse box.

    As far as I could tell, I could not fit the coax beside the larger bundle. I would have to take a closer look to see.

    There are rubber grommets in the floor that you could use. This would let you run the coax under the carpet.
