BMS Wires To The Front

I decided to run the 20 BMS wires up to the front box via the "tunnel" using nine feet of non-metallic 3/4" flexible conduit. There are rubber plugged holes behind the rear seat and in the front battery box that perfectly fit the water-tight connectors. The conduit has plenty of anchor points where the exhaust system would have been in the tunnel. The conduit is 3" to 4" higher than the power cables you see running under the driver's side floorpan.

I used the lower gearbox mount to attach a loose guide/clamp to keep the conduit away from the driveshaft and steering bootie. With everything exposed this was a good time to change the gearbox fluid.
