Post 02' Dodge Ram install questions

OK I waiting on my P.I.E Auxiliary Input Converter (CHRY02-AUX) and Pro.Fit legend series mount to arrive and have a question. I plan on using a 12v accessory outlet in the dash so everything will be hidden, but was wondering will the dash bezel fit correctly with the wires coming out between the dash and the bezel or will I have to make a hole to the get the wires from behind the dash to my Sportster Replay

Here's a picture of what I'm talking about if that helps. It's not my vehicle but similar install.

When I had my 99 Ram like that, it made it through.
Just had to space the wires side by side.

At worst, you might have to notch the bezel.

I finally went to a under the dash/seat module for my pioneer head unit.
Got tired of forgetting the starmate in the "other" vehicle or in the office.
Or having to hide it when I stopped somewhere while on the road or around town.

HD03KING ,I also have a Ram with the same PIE set up and I did notice that for some reason the volume is much lower on what ever you connect to the PIE than the FM so when switching from SIRUS to FM turn down the volume first. I think it is something with the OE HU as I had nothing like this when I used a PIE interface in my Ford super duty but I tried 2 PIE interface units on the Dodge and I also tried a MYFI with XM and a Stiletto with SIRIUS. I bought a line level amp and ended up with great sound with the truck shut off . With it running I got some annoying alternator whine . I tried a number of grounds , ran power wires every which way and tried a ground loop isolator which helped marginally . I took all but the PIE out and live with the lower volume and accept the fact it won`t play as loud as I like when windows are down . I just wanted to give ya a heads up being I have already had to deal with it and I noticed other Dodge owners with similar complaints .
