Default Existing Firewall hole into cab?

Hey guys,

I'm planning to get some OE foglights installed, I'm just wondering about my firewall...are there pre-drilled holes that go directly into the cab?

Thanks

I think I saw that in my cab...I have a 09'...lol that red wire looks menacing...ahahaha

So that rubber gromet just pops off? Do you know which area under the hood it to? probably near the steering coloumn yes?

that would be were the clutch rod goes thru, good spot to run things. Its kinda hard to see from the engine bay, but is right under the fuse block

No picture but I drilled an inch hole and put a store bought grommet in to run my electrical. My amp goes in as well as a few other items.

IMO I would run the wire through the rubber grommet like I did instead of around it. Having an electrical wire rubbing against the metal of the firewall isn't a good idea. No offense Clinton, but I would be worried about that wire rubbing through

I guess I'll find out lol. I figured the grommet snapped in so tight there is no room for movement but when they quit workin, I'll do it another way!

I put the wire through the same grommet as being shown it's the hood release cable. I just pulled the wire back using a coat hanger (straight as a fish.
