Running coax into cab

How/where do you radio guys run the antenna coax into the truck? I don't want to run through a window or door seal. Are there any grommets at or near the rear of an 08 DC?

Any pics of where you have run it through?

Thanks,

there are 2 rubber grommets that u can pop through the firewall....besides that, u'd prolly have to hollow out one of the rubber pop ins under the cab and go through there

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

There are a couple of rubber gromets on the underside of the truck. You can follow the frame right to them. One is under the left side of the driver seat.

I wound up using a Wilson 5000 mag mount in the center of the cab roof. I ran the coax into the cab by way of the slider window.

Yes I used a Wilson mag mount too (have tried both the 500 and the Lil Will).

I, like you, at first ran coax thru slider but soon got tired of how bush league it looked after awhile (only my opinion), so I ran it under cab thru a grommet.

Here is a shot:

Good luck.
