Default Running Power/Ground Wire

I have to add 4 runs of 1/0 gauge power and ground wire from the front to the back. Does anyone have advice as to make this chore easier?

Dont run the ground from the front to the rear first off. Make the ground as short as possible.


As for running the power from the front to the rear, Along the frame is your best bet and then entering the cab in the rear in a good spot. That many runs of 1/0 through the firewall would be nearly impossible.

Could I use some PVC pipe to run it under the Blazer?

There would be no need to. Just keep it all tucked up by the frame and you'll be good. Use zip ties

^This, and I wouldn't trust PVC to protect anything anyway.
