I received my ALP kit yesterday so like any kid with new toys I had to start playing with them immediately.

I had inspiration from some of the other threads of 2014-18 Sierra installs and this is how I did it.
Took about 5 hours +1 bonus hour because one head connector wasn't quite right.
Sorry the engine bay is pretty dusty

Ran sensor wires through the firewall using the grommet on the driver's side right in front of the door

Once all the cables were fished through the front fender to the engine bay I routed them to their respective spots.

Removed the cowl at the front of the engine bay, mounted all the sensors level and connected them to their respective leads.
Some pictures of the routing I used. I used zip ties and 3M tape on some rub points/sharp spots just to be safe.

Inside the truck I have the Hifi speaker and GPS module in the dash under the steering column. All of the wiring is spooled up and tucked away under the dash or near the firewall.

I used a micro2 add a fuse for power and didn't take any pictures under the dash!

Overall it was not too painful to install. Planning to have it tested soon

Very nice! How many sensors are you running and where did you put them :)

@Logan T I have 2 Rx and 1 Tx - the Rx are in the bottom slats/Tx right under the M! I used your thread for some inspiration :)

Ah I see from that one pic it looks really good! I think that will perform really well. That's the best place for the TX it also makes it look clean and blended in as best as possible. If that doesn't perform well you can just move the RX sensors either to the same slat as the TX or one above like mine but I think that will do well. Hopefully you can find someone with Dragon and you'll know for sure how covered you are.

Yeah I hear there might be a dragon tester or two floating around in AB - hopefully I can track one down!

Nicely done. Looks like an easy install in comparison with some cars!
