Default Amp power wire routing 2011 XLT

What is the best way to run my power wire in a 2011 XLT 4dr 4.0L Manual

I quickly scanned the firewall and couldn't really find an obvious area to cleanly run the wire. I think its 4 or 8 awg . About the size of the smaller sharpie not the huge one.

Does anyone have pic's of their newer model ranger routing? I'm not sure which other years the 2011 matches up to. Just got the truck.

I cut a slit in the big rubber grommet that most of the wires go through the firewall in. Others have just drilled a new hole. Easiest way is to remove the fuse box to get to the open area under it.

Just find an existing grommet that's big enough to get it through then just run it under the carpet.

I just drilled a new hole just under the thick set of wires on the drivers side. I have an 06 regular cab sport. I just drilled the hole big enough for the cable.
