From what I am reading...The mount has to be grounded....The beds of the newer tacos are a composite...so no metal to ground to on the inside

This is correct. You can purchase mounts with grounding provision built in. And run a ground wire to the nearest point on your chassis. Not only do we need to do this on our beds, but also upfront, for hood-mounts. (The hood hinge is a bad ground connection).

With a 10 foot whip I'm sure you'll be fine. There will be enough antenna over the roof for a decent ground plane. The problem people generally have when mounting an antenna in the bed is having an antenna that is too short. The bed rails from what I have heard are grounded by the way but it wouldn't hurt to ground the mount to the frame if you have SWR issues. Good luck!

If you use the lil Wil and run it through the 3rd brake light where do you drill your hole for the coax connector?

If you're talking about a mag mount, I did something similar on my Runner. I ran the coax thru the rubber grommet and sealed it back up with black rtv; should be some pics in my build thread.

I read some words of inspiration a while back. The words were "wilson 1000 that shit" can't remember who by but I did exactly that and have never been happier. Had a flat swr across all channels and didn't even have to adjust it.
