03 Dakota Firewall hole location ?

    I'm installing a 7' Boss Spot Duty plow on a 2003 Dodge Dakota.
    Instructions say to cut a 1 1/4" hole in the fire wall for the controller wires to pass
    into the cab. I didn't see any spot that looked like a good place for the hole.
    My truck is a 5 speed, V6.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Look beside the brake pedal. I used an existing hole in the Firewall to run my wires. I know there are at least 3 good locations along the Firewall to put wires through.

    I have a manual transmission so my clutch master cylinder is in the spot next to the brake booster.
    What are the other locations?

    Thanks,

    I cheated on my dakota. I ran my harness thru the driver fender and went thru one of the holes on the door jamb. I did not have to drill anything and the holes are far enough forward so the harness does not get pinched by the door. Mine is a manual tranny also

    That always works too. If not I was going to say where your main engine harness comes threw there should be room to push more wires threw the same groument.
