Where are you putting it/them? As far as running it outside the cab, see if there is a grommet in the firewall that is big enough to feed it through or a body plug under the cab some where. The grommet will require cutting off the end and reattaching it of course...

To be honest it is easier to just drill a hole in the floorboard and silicone it up after you run the wire.

I drilled a whole in the back of my cab for my strobes and now that i don't have them i ran the wire through there and then under the bed rails to my mount on the tail gate

Same. I have holes for strobe wire, holes for coax, holes for power, holes that I don't know what they were for. Much simpler. JUST LOOK UNDER BEFORE YOU DRILL!!!
