UPDATE: Cb antenna install/relocation

I was re-routing my cb antenna wire today and making a new mount for it. I looked for the a moment and found an area where no drilling is required. I searched and didnt find anything on this so here you go
Ran the antenna wire along the top of the frame and ran the wire up through the stock access to behind taillights
Click for full-size image (1024 x 768)

Had to remove the tailights but that was easy 4 bolts and it's off
Click for full-size image (1024 x 768)

then i wriggles the wire through the top of the bed, where the end piece of the bed and the top of the bed meet, there is an opening about a 1/2 inch in diameter,
Click for full-size image (1024 x 768)

fnished, a nice clean look, with no drilling required at least no drilling into your truck for the wires

you mean how did i do the mod? Just buy a deckplate from a local marine shop or from ebay for like $4
cut a hole out to fit the "ring" inside of, you'll need something to seal the space between your deckplate and air box, i used plumbers putty to seal it and a hole saw to cut it out

once you've had it sealed you can screw in the screws provided with the deckplate (you'll need to drill the screws)
after that the deckplate can be put it or left out i usually run mine open unless im in sand/mud

A pic of the deckplate covered up
