Take the passenger side kick plate/trim (where your feet are when sitting in the passenger seat) off. Then take off your passenger side sun visor - you'll need access to the hole where it mounts to fish the harness (you don't have to do this, but I think that extra access hole makes it much easier). Then you can take something like a coat hanger or other stiff wire and fish that from the first cab light hole down the passenger side A pillar to where you took the kick plate off. You can use the hole from where the sun visor mounts to guide your wire in to the A pillar. Once you have that fished, then you can attach the harness to your fish wire and pull it down. Once you have the bottom part of the harness fished, then you've got to start fishing the upper side of the harness from one cab light hole to the other. We used one of those nifty little "parts grabber" things (i have no idea what it's called) - you know, where you push the button on one end and the tiny claws open up on the other end. Don't know if that makes sense...Anyway, we started at the very next cab light hole from where you fished the wire down, then pulled the harness to that hole. Then moved to the next, etc. until it was all the way across. It's really not too bad! It helps to have two people.

What ever you're using for a snake, run it down the pillar from the visor hole. Once it comes out down at the bottom, tape the harness to it and pull it on down through the pillar. That's how we did both of Tyler's.
