Running speaker wires to rear

Anyone know how these are routed in a 90? I need to fit a pair of speakers to the rear of the 110 and the 90's in the shop. I'll be fitting the amp under the passenger seat.

You could run them with the break light wires, I know in the 90s the wires all come up behind the rear PS speaker.

Yep, I am pretty sure they run along the fuel line. You could also run them in the bed capping's but it is kinda a pain to fish them through.

they are run under the tub, buy a pack of those plastic lock tie things and follow the brake lights back towards the center cubby. you can clip the existing ties on all those wires, add your new ones, then tie them back up again (remember to clip the extra length).

I'd definately recommend using a thick gauge of cable for the speakers, as well as everything else that needs wires exposed to the ground.

Not sure itf it's different year to year, but your wiring loom enters the frame tube (inside of the frame) at the passenger side bulkhead, and exits the frame tube on the passenger side behind the rear axle. That's at least how mine is on the '97.

Correct, the harness runs through the frame. I see nothing wrong with doing an above-frame run so long as you make a neat job of it.
