    put mine under the seat in my access cab and grounded it on the bolt which holds the seat in. works perfect as long as your terminal is big enough to fit around and get good contact. What size cab do you have??

    I tried to ground mine on the seat bolt, but my terminal wasn't big enough so I drilled a hole under the carpet and grounded it under there.

    Welp, I guess I'll give that a shot then. I have an Access Cab also. Mine's grounded under the seatbelt (female end) on the driver-side. I'm thinking I may be having ground loop issues though, so I wanted to check you guys out.


    :D

    amp under the drivers seat...grounded to the seat bolt. my connector wasn't quite big enough so i had to modify it a tick. ie, i made it more u shaped instead of a circle. 1.5 years and no issues.
