Default Temp sensor wire from cab to front of truck

I'm getting ready to run the wire for my temp sensor and I'm wondering how/where exactly people passed the wire from inside cab to the engine compartment. As well where did you clip the sensor?

I'd like to run out the passenger side but looks like the easiest path is the drivers side.

Any factory grommet should do.
If you can't find one with enough room for the temp sensor wires, just drill a hole, install a grommet & feed the wires thru (make sure to seal the grommet with silicone)

The hole the main harness goes through works. Use a coat hanger or some metal wire to fish it through.

Thanks for the tips I tried the main harness but the way the main harness makes a 90 degree turn was a pain to fish the wire so I used the small single cable grommet near it and was no problem.
