I ran it up the middle just because it would use the least amount of wire and seemed to be the easiest to do in my opinion. It was just bare metal under the carpet; I don't know if that would effect anything or not. I ran mine like that for 2 years before I sold the truck and it is still probably the same way right now.

My old truck also had spots for the rear speakers in the corners of the cab. There plastic trim pieces that held them in place with a plastic cover that went over the speakers with horizontal slots in them. Mine was a regular cab, don't if yours is or not. I bet you could find those interior pieces to hold the speakers at a junkyard if you don't have them.

I didn't realize you had a stick shift and mine was an auto. Should've read your sig a little better. The wires were underneath the carpet/ rubber floor which had some insulation under it for heat/ noise. The flooring and insulation had enough cushion on it so that it wouldn't get damaged if someone stepped directly on it. And also it was on the center hump, so rarely did anyone ever sit in the middle and put any significant weight on them.

As for having a manual and not running the wires down the middle, I would say just get creative and find another place to run them.

In a stock setup, the wires are run down the sides and can be easily view if you take off the kick plates.
