Routing wire harness from rear bumper into the cab

I have a 2003 Ram 3500 extended cab and I am installing a rearview camera system for my RV. I have to route the wire harness from the rear bumper into the cab, does anyone have any advice as to the best way to do this?

I'm assuming the wire isn't very large correct? Probably 3-4 wires about the size of a standard rca cable?

If you have enough length I would suggest routing it all the way to the firewall or any other factory grommet going from the cab to the exterior. Most of the factory grommets have enough give that you can sneak another wire in through them. This is very common for power wire when adding an aftermarket amp for subs or speakers.

One trick is to stick a coat hanger through the grommet first and then tape the wires really well to it and pull it through. If you are in a pinch you can even use the antenna from the truck, the ball on the end makes it nice and easy to get through the grommet.
