Umm, I don't understand this unsafe under the car stuff?? First of all if you runn it correctly nothing should hit it. Hopefully you put a fuse on the line near the battery, so if it does snag or get s cut and grounds its still safe, the fuse should blow. the car manufactures run electrical wires under the car, and most electric cars have the main power lines run under the car.. I have run quite a few power lines under cars.. never had a problem, even totaled one care, no fire and the wire didnt even get cut..
You can have a similar issue in the car, where you have the rug that can spread fire even faster if the wire shorted out...
So really everything has its pros and cons.. I will take a pic of my set up today at work and post it..

When I installed my trailer light wiring harness, the instructions had me run the power wire to the battery exactly like this under the car.

I will be. I will be using a knukonceptz 0/4 dual amp kit.


You need a step drill bit. The kit comes with the right size grommet for the 0 ga wire.

I just need to figure out where to drill so I don't hit anything.
