There's a wiring passthrough on the passenger side many of us have used...

A. Hard to see/get wire through.
B. (I always run power on driver's side, old school signal/power separation theory) Use extra 8-10 feet of power wire running it through there.

Any decent shop should sell you a 4 AWG grommet for a buck. I would go that route if I were doing it again.
