I want to hook up a amp to my after market radio but am having a hard time finding a place to run the power wire to the battery. Are there any holes in the firewall that I can use? I have looked but I may have missed it or something. I want to run a sub box off of it. I would love to use the preexisting amp but I'm not sure if I can. Are there any other power sources I can use to run the amp, for example the trailer lights of something like that? I called a audio place around me and they want $130 to install it. That seems like a wast of money when I have done it in other cars but just can't find a hole in this one.

My ZJ is a 94 so I hope this helps. Here's my install

There's a grommet near my coolant reservoir that leads into the fender


From there, the wires go under the top door hinge and into the boot in the passenger door jam


Then down the floor board to the back under the rear passenger seat where I split the power/ground using splitters going to my mid-highs amp


cap, sub amp


Any questions, e-mail me Good Luck...

Thanks for your help. I finally got it in. I got my friend that worked in an install shop to drill a hole for me. It wasn't as bad asI thought it would be. I was waiting for my Jeep didn't blow up or something.
