Default 8 runs of wire!?!

I have a 01 s10 and am going to be running 4 power 4 ground from front to bank that's a overall 2.25" circular diameter and there's no way to run a conduit that size with all my exhaust gas tank and ect..and I don't want to run it bare so the only other option is to run it thru the cab and somehow tunnel it thru the blowthru I am imaging this to look really gay..so I know im not the only guy with a high current producing ride with a gazillion wires so what are some tips n tricks. Thank you

Lots of people run wire under their vehicle without protection with no problems. I ran 4/0 under a Mitsubishi 3000gt with no issues

yeah if you use good enough wire and route it smartly you should never have a problem unless you do a lot of rock crawling/off roading...And thats what fuses are for.

I was going to use exhaust stock but it was too big and wouldn't make it around the obstacles. I've used frame rails in the past however on this ride the frame is hollow but all sealed up.
