Like I said run it through the driver side door sills and under your back seat and out into the trunk

Running it through the door sills looks pretty stupid IMO. I found a rubber grommet not being used in my firewall and ran my wiring through it. Then ran the wires under the carpet and under my back seat after taking it out (PITA). Then ran all the wires under my trunk carpeting.

You run it under the sides. Take that little moulding off the bottom of the door opening and run it right through there, then put it back.

Brents right, pop the door sills and run it under there, (my strobe wires are under my driver side.) and my rear seat just pops out with 2 white tabs under it. very easy for me, (i have a 98)

lol, yeah, door sills. I'll be running 2 gauge wire to the trunk for my battery relocation soon. I might leave the 4 gauge in there for the subs, dunno yet.
