    I am looking to install my new light bar and my new strobe kit in my 2010 tundra and I was wondering is there anyone out there that has done one and knows where I can bring the wirers thru the firewall WITHOUT drilling any new holes any help would be greatly appreciated.

    by the throttle cable is a good start...otherwise you need to massage a factory grommet to make more room..

    honestly i prefer to go out the floor as they always have plastic plugs in a few spots..

    email me if you need more help....it goes to my phone.

    the 2010 tundras a fly by wire, they dont have a throttle cable. i would find a grommet somewhere too. i cut an " X " into mine and pushed the wires through to help keep water out.

    04 can you just give me a verbal idea where you found your grommet I know it was be different but just a starting point would be awesome. I am doing all of this because I am looking into putting a plow on this summer

    same here, thats why i got my strobes and back rack with lights. i know theres some on the back of the cab (in-between the cab and bed) its about an inch wide, and theres 2 of them on either side of the truck. im not sure about the firewall on your truck, but i didn't have any openings on mine so i put the wires out the door grommet that holds the wiring for the door panel.

    Haha well the tundra is my daily driver and I have a 01 F 350 for plowing but after this winter I would like to have another truck set up to do minor stuff just to help if I have to dive into another full truck I will have to by something because I don't want to beat up my new tundra it's to nice. I am waiting for Toyota to come out with there 1 ton which will be my next purchase that things is amazing

    From what I hear they are getting very close I have someone on the inside at toyota and they said that they are really close to settin a release date for sometime late this year early next but who knows. The government is just scared the truck is amazing already drove it it easily will take over the market and hurt the other big guys

    i agree..the other thing is the toyota hilux that they wont let over here...basicly a tacoma with a diesel in it getting 45MPG...nobody would drive anything else if that was put on the market here. i know i would sell my truck in a heartbeat for one of them
