    I have seen a few posts that are kinda of what I am looking for but not all of my questions. How would you go about putting wires from your back rack to the inside of the cab. It would be a light bar, sport lights and maybe a cb antena wire. I would like the sport lights to come on when i turn my cargo lights on. I would also like the easyest way to do it to. I think I could put the wires through the 3rd brake light. I would like some pics of what other people have to. Thanks appreatate it.

    My lightbar wires are run under the third brake light. I cut a notch under it big enough for the cable, then installed a rubber grommet to keep the metal from cutting the cable. Once put together, I gave it all a good coating of silicone to ensure it being waterproof. Ran the wires behind the panel with the speaker, then under the sill plate. Can't see any of my wires at all. My other lights go thru the vent at the back of the cab then along the same as my lightbar

    Yeah I had to drop it but didn't have to remove it. The vents I am referring to are located at the back of the cab, near the corners between the bed. You can access them easily from under the truck and inside behind the trim panel

    2002-2006 GM Trucks have a large grommet in the floor just about under the driver's left foot. I believe it's the parking brake cable that comes through there. You can cut it, run wires through there, and then put some silicone over it when done. Have run a number of wires from the rear of my truck up through there.
