    Run the strobe cables along the frame with existing wire harnesses and bring them up through a hole in the floor under the rear seat(you have to drill it - 1" is adequate for 4 cables, 1 3/8 for 6) and then put the supply next to that. Run the switch wires under the rug, into the chase under the edge door panels, up by the e-brake and to the upfitter switches behind the fuse panel.

    Not a problem, might as well ask for answers and have it come out right and durable.

    My F-350 has an access hole on the rear wall of the cab near the floor on each side. I had to remove the back trim panel to get to it. You can check out a chassis cab at the dealer to see the locations. ( it's hard to see from the outside with the box on).
