Any suggestions on best wire looms or boots to run wires to my front doors in my 72 blazer. This is my daily / camping rig so it doesn't need to be fancy. All I am running is the speaker wires. Thanks in advance.

I got some of the 80 up door wiring boots for my 77. I haven't installed them yet.
P O had the speaker wire in fuel line.

The best ones I've found are from the gmt400 trucks. Round, accordion shaped. Easy to install. (Except the fact that to door has to come off.)

If that is the case is a great time to renew the hinge bushings and pins. I may be there soon too.

All you do is hole saw, and push them in like a normal grommet

When I installed my door speakers a few years ago, I didn't want to drill giant holes for large factory boots when I only needed to run a couple speaker wires. So I just used two layers of plastic corrugated wire loom and tucked the ends into the slightly undersized holes that I drilled. The inside layer of corrugated loom is smaller than the outside, and it also protrudes farther into the door. It has held up great so far.
