if you wheel your truck, mount it as high as possible.
I have mine sitting on the upper passenger side fender.

I don't think there is anything back there except wiring for your dash & instrument cluster. May want to pull the radio out & take a peek first.

no problem, and thanks. Hope it goes smoothly for you.

edit: something i did, that you might want to consider: leave the factory connector for the coil leads (2 small wires) attached and splice in a little further up the wire.
That way you can plug in your stock coil if the aftermarket one fails.

Thats the thing....they usually do. Do a search and you will see that many people haven't had much success with aftermarket coils. They are generally for high performance applications and either have no effect or end up killing a PCM or something along the way. The stock Ram coils are actually pretty damn stout and powerful when compared to other stock applications. :smash:
