Plan B, a little more costly ... I just bought a new Ranger truck and  
one look under the hood was enough too tell me I didn't want to begin  
to try to figure out a way through the firewall. When I took it down  
to the place to have the spray on bedliner done, they also do car  
alarms and remote starters. They charged me one hour labor ($30) to  
run a wire (which I supplied) from the battery into the cab down by   
the console. As far as I am concerned, it was worth every penny and I  
have the unblemished (read that as not scraped) knuckles to prove it!  
I spliced the fuse holder on near the battery and then crimped on the  
terminals and bolted it to the battery and then crimped on the Power  
Poles and mounted a 5 position RigRunner on the console and plugged  
the cable to it.
