Default Best place to run power wire

I am running my power wire by my driver seat. I need to know a good place to run it. I don't want to drill through the fire wall. If there are any suggestions I'd love to know. Thanks.

Depending on the size you may be able to squeeze it through a existing hole in the fire wall.

Up around where the steering shaft goes through there are some. Also where the main wire harness runs.

When I was running power for my lights I ran it through an existing rubber gromit about where STL said. I used a small flathead screwdriver to move it aside and a wire coat hanger to fish the wire through.

I ran mine under my dash, then through my door jam and through the space between the fender and hood. Its kind of ghetto but you cant see it and it works.

I ran mine through fender, under the truck and then into the grommet with the cab bolt under the carpeting, but after seeing where you all put it, that may change.
