There's plenty of space in here, I can move the wire so nothing will get pinched and plus we have enough to go down to our trailer hitch. Keeping it somewhat inside the vehicle will make the contacts on the 4 pull last a lot longer than sitting outside all the time. This is the parts that you get. more
