in the 2013 has anyone been ble to pull a 10 gauge positive feed through the firewall? I tried doing it in the 2010 but it was so tight that I could not find any location to pull it through.  I may be getting a 13 Limited EB tomorrow and will need to run trailer wiring through it since it lacks a tow package, but the deal is too good to pass up over a tow package.

A little late to respond, but I just did this on a 2013 CPO that just had to have a factory hitch!  The Ford wiring kit requires a battery feed to operate the converter.  No battery feed, no lights work.  I had the same dilemna.  Finally punched a hole through the boot (away from the shaft as much as possible) around the steering column shaft where it goes through the firewall.  Sharp awl, coat hanger with the wire taped to it and you finally get it through.  Silicone spray helps too!  The coat hanger goes from the inside so you can pull the #10 wire back from the engine compartment.  This by far the most difficult firewall that I have had to put wires through.  Usually there is a knock-out that can be used.  I didn't find one.  Just got the 2013 so never knew of the Flex Blog until now.
