Default Multiple runs of 1/0. Where?

I want to do 2 runs of pos and 1 run of neg to my trunk to a second battery, but I am wondering how you guys do this. Would it make sense to run it under the car? I know there is a place i can run it into the trunk, but fastening it along the way is the issue.

How do you guys fasten your wire under your car?

Or should i just balls up and cut a larger hole?

I run anything over 4 gauge under the vehicle if possible. It's easier.

as for how to do it, you can usually secure the first run with P clips [conduit hanging clips] then zip tie the other lines to the first line.

P clip

I'd running It under the car get some PVC pipe big enough to fit all the runs and drill some holes an use heavy duty zip ties and screws to secure it to chassis with wore inside...

I've had 4 runs under my truck for a couple years with no problems...use some big heavy duty zipties and it's good to go.

The pvc would be nice, but not needed

I run under my truck as well...just avoid moving parts like the plague and zip tie the chit out of it! We have nasty winters up here in NW Pa and they salt the roads like my uncle does his chicken...no issues with it corroding or anything like that. In my truck I was pretty lucky...there is a HUGE grommet that comes inside from the rear tail lights that I was able to cut open and have a nice entry into the cabin. So far I have two power going out the drivers side light opening and two grounds going out the passenger side light, and it drops right behind the rear bumper cover to the frame

Anyone who says to "use PVC" hasn't done it themselves.

I have used flexible blue plastic conduit for a single run but I wouldn't consider it for multiples because you are limited as far as space and conduit of any kind makes you take up more space.
