Where to mount ham radio in a JKU?

I purchased the Yaesu FTM400-XDR mobile ham radio. I hope to install it under the passenger seat. I already have the antenna installed on the tailgate and the cable runs down the passenger side and up under the passenger seat. This was the best place for it as it comes through the tailgate on the passenger side. I was using it with a handy talkie I kept under the passenger seat.

But, the power cable that came with the radio is pretty short and will not run across to the driver side, through the grommet in the firewall and then back to the passenger side to the battery. I cannot find a grommet like that on the passenger side but you can't see much of the firewall on that side. Is there a grommet on the passenger side?

If there isn't a grommet, where do you recommend to install the radio? I hoped to keep it hidden and keep the mic and remote head cords on the passenger side of the Jeep.

Thanks.

Nevermind, found a video by TrailRecon on YouTube that exactly answers my question. And also shows how to get the fuse holder through the firewall. I was afraid I would have to cut that off and re-attach it.
