    look for plugged holes..

    Most all GM trucks have a few extra holes punched in the firewall,and have rubber plugs in them--you poke a phillips screwdiver thru the plug,it then becomes a grommet!--or you can yank it out and run ALL the wires thru.them put something like a slit hose to prevent them from chafing on the sharp metal and shorting out..the plugs resemble a male sex organ,they are installed from the inside of the cab,only a small "nipple" sticks out under the hood side...I used the ones closest to the gas pedal and fuse box most often.. :crazy:
