Im attempting to put LED's in my grill but I can not find a hole to run the wire from the GRILL TO THE CAB/FUSE BOX. So if someone could help me that would be great. There has to be a open hole somewhere i have seen people with LED's in there grill before. Thanks in advance!

P.S Sooner the better, I'm sitting in the garage as we speak trying to find a hole and i have always had this problem:bangit: lol Sorry had to say it, i set myself up for that.

I followed the hood release wire back to the firewall and used a wire hanger to push through the rubber boot. Hooked the wire on the hanger and pulled it back through.

small diameter wire can also run through the A/C drain grommet on passenger side and there is also an approx 1/2" dia hole w/ black plug behind brake booster (look with flashlight from under hood) on driver side

If none of those ideas work you could always just run it out the back of your hood, duct tape it to the pillar and run it into the open door, then tape it to your dash. Just Kidding, I'm sure you'll get it!

The cargo light wire is in the passenger footwell, right side behind the plastic, pale green. The light will come on whenever your interior doors or cargo light comes on, you can also flip it on using the cargo light switch. The LED's shouldn't pull much draw, you should be able to just tap into it. I'm running 12 LED's off it, about 1.3 W, no issues.

Depending on how much current it draws you can either tap an existing circuit directly for power or tap to trigger a relay. What I would do is use a relay and a three position switch to switch the relay trigger lead so I would have the choice of OFF-ON-ON w/dome lights.

On my truck, solid pale green, no stripes, no dots, little thicker than most wires under there. It was toward the back of the bundle of wires. Wow didn't realize it sorry for the bad pic.
