Getting the antenna cable out on my 2000 F-150 is easy since there's a factory "exit" (filled by a plug) on both sides of the cab.  However, I'm having difficulty finding a good spot to run my power cord through the firewall.  What looks good inside usually runs into something under the hood and vice-versa.  Are there any late model F-150 owners out there who have found one?

Tnx

Use a fish tape. If you have a hole on one side, use the fishtape to see where it comes out on the other.

On my '97 F-150, there is a opening that is plugged off with a big oval rubber plug. It is located on the drivers side of the engine, down low on the firewall.

If you carefully pull up the carpet inside the cab just behind and to the left of the gas pedal, you should have easy access to this rubber plug/pass though in the firewall.

I just cut a slit in this plug, just big enough to pass 10ga zip cord though.

So hopefully, Ford left this openning in the firewall.

Good Luck,
