    Anyone else do some of their own wiring for car stereo? I've hooked up my own head unit and speakers, but somewhat concerned about where to punch a hole (or is there an existing spot I can use) to get a power cable to the rear of the Burb to power the amplified subwoofer.

    Suggestions?

    I have a '98 K1500

    Just find an existing grommet that you can thread it through. That's what I had to do on my '91 Sub. Not very difficult to do.

    8 Gauge wire. It is a kicker powered sub, so I have the wiring pulled from my old rig. I don't see spot I can thread thru and suspect I'll need to drill a hole.

    After looking at some other forums, I traced the antenna lead back into the cab thru the passenger side. It was behind the coolant overflow bottle. I'm a car stereo noob, but gaining confidence with every small job I do. :)
