I ran both my antennae and my power and ground to my light bar up through the A pilar. The existing upfitter wiring was just slightly too small for my power and ground amperage draw to my light bar.... I would not use that upfitter wire for anything over a 15 amp draw and my KC light bar draws just over 16 amp and I wanted my antennae

mounted above the roof (as high as I could). When you are snaking up through the A pilar just be sure to tie back everything out of the way of the air bags.

well, I may be the first then. I already have the cable and power run through the firewall boot. Now I need to get it up the A pillars and to the radio mounted on the overhead Molle panel. Not sure how hard it is to pull all that stuff off to run everything behind it. Anyone who has pulled the A pillar panels and the trim piece above the doors off feel free to chime in with suggestions. I'm assuming, they are just clipped in and need to be just popped out?
IAG sells some interior lights that require you to pull that upper trim down to install. I’ve done it, it’s really not that bad. You can probably look for that video as well.

Check out this video by @Middleton Motorsports posted in another informative radio install thread. I believe it shows the process of removing the trim panels to run your wiring.
