klessa Okay, I know everyone has been on pins and needles waiting to hear about my firewall crisis. I finally found the spot -- to the right and above the gas pedal, although I could never manage to work the plug completely out of there. I ended up drilling a nice little hole through the rubber gasket and now I'm (finally) on to the fun part, wiring. Egads. Thanks.

Hmmm. Okay. I don't see it.

Not where the steering wheel itself goes, right?

Here -- the smaller black gasket on left, is that the one?

Where to go through firewall

I asked this in the middle of a thread concerning wiring some lights... but thought I'd post here as well. On a TJ, where do you recommend going through the firewall with wiring? I assume there's a place already used for some passthrough which would be good to re-use for this purpose but I can't find it.

I don't have the ability to put my jeep up on a rack at this point, so it has to be something reachable just through the engine area. Can someone walk me through where and how to get some wiring through the firewall?
