Some people might object but mine i bolted to the floor under the drivers seat. Then on the underside of the cab i used a ground strap from one of the bolts and grounded it to the frame where the ground strap is on the drivers side rear body body mount. Seems to be super solid there.

Would that be the same as just bolting it on the frame and running my ground wire back in the cab?

Dont do it on the frame. You will get corrosion. You want it in a nice dry area inside. Make sure you have a clean paint free area.

So would it be ok to grind the paint off in a small spot and screw it into the cab floor?

Absolutely. But if you screw through the bottom of the floor, make sure you seal the screws so you dont get #1, rust & #2, corrosion.
