I'm about to drill a hole in the top of the cab of my F250 (2006).  If anyone out there has and information as to where the wire bundles run along the cab and especially to the top of the roof I would appreciate a heads up.

I'd rather use an established channel than mess up and find it too late.

Thanks,
Ken

That depends on the model. The real worry is, you don't want to drill through a roof support. So, you have to have enough access to the underside to tell where they are.

The C pillar is the safest place, but if your PU has a B pillar, it can be used too.

If you have a service manual, you're 90% there.

Thanks for the info...but unfortunately no expensive service manual.  

I should have mentioned I have the full sized four door cab...that would have helped.  

Specifically, I was wondering how they fed the electricity to the overhead light console so I'd know what side to run on with disassembling too much as well as any helpful hints to move, adjust, remove, whatever the headliner without damaging it for access to drill.

Thanks for guidance,
Ken

Go to a local body shop.  They will have a body panel/parts book that will probably show you where everything goes.  I recently had my minivan worked on.  The guy at the shop used a book to tell him what to take apart, how to do it, and whats behind the panels.
