how to protect harness

What is the best way to protect this transmission control harness from the sides of the hole. I'm all ready gonna cover the hole with dynamat which should hold the harness away from the sides of the hole but should I do more? maybe:

Zip tie some leather around the wire loom

and I am gonna try and clean up the hole a little today but its still gonna be sharp.

Any ideas are appreciated

Re: how to protect harness

A quick Google search turned up this website, https://rubber-grommet.com/ I'd look through here and find something to use to protect the wires from chaffing.

Thanks for that but I donít think a grommet will work because there is a 1 1/2Ē diameter plug on the end of that line. Thatís why the hole is so big.

Re: how to protect harness

How about a Split grommet?
Link below for example there are many different types.

Thanks for that. Funny thing is after saying a grommet wouldn't work I went to that website and it looks fantastic and I thought to myself that if they had one that would work I could cut it on one (or two) sides and it would be perfect.

Those at McM'carr are certainly a possibility.

Gonna finish routing wires through there and see just how many I have then go one of these two routes.

thanks again

Thumbs up Re: how to protect harness

Lowes & Home Depot sell a package of rubber insulators for this. You may have to buy several of them though to get enough of the right sizes. They are in the electrical section where the tie wraps are. The boxes have like 8 different sizes in them I bought a couple of packs the other week myself.

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

There are also a lot of individual odd sized grommets in those hardware drawers, under the bolts at Lowes.
