    Anyone have tips on how to run wire in a blazer with no carpet? I took out all the carpet/padding out of my blazer, and sprayed on Herculiner. I will be upgrading my stereo (adding subs, amps, etc) and I'm worried about hiding all the wires that I route. Should I put something down so that the wires are covered? I really don't want to lay down carpet, however...

    Thanks!

    Metal conduit underneath the pan.....run all the wires through the conduit and have it come through on the inside everywhere you need the wires to be.

    The only catch would be to install it so that water could not get back down into the conduit and rust them from the inside-out.

    I had 2 Rockford Fosgate 3.5" in front and a pair of 6x9's back by the rear seat. I mounted 2 small amps and a crossover in the glove box. I then mounted my CD Player in a Tuffy center console. The bottom of the console is open so I drilled a hole through the floor and up into the engine compartment. Then went through the fire wall into the back of the glove box. I ran the speaker wires to the back speakers in conduit and never had any problems.

    This was in a totally gutted interior in my 74 Blazer. No one knew I had any amps in there or a CD player for that matter.
    I left the stock knob radio is the dash to deter the would be thief.

    It sounded pretty good for using a pair of amps that were over 8 years old.
