Amp Power Cable Question

Where is the best/easiest way to get the power cable from the engine area to the cab in a 99 Sahara?

I ran it through a little boot I found just above the clutch pedal that went through the firewall. Make sure you run the power for your amp on the opposite side of the jeep as your RCA cables if you haven't already

I drilled a hole right behind the battery tray - you can get at it from the inside of the Jeep, below the glovebox. You'll see the firewall right in between the HVAC components there. Be sure to use a plastic grommet (usually included with an amp wiring kit) and seal your hole up with some silicone. Also be sure to split loom any cable under the hood. This location is nice because it's near the battery so you don't have a lot of cable exposed to the harsh underhood environment.

I believe my audio place used a similar location as eboven, and I'm sure for the same reason.
