    Where is the best place to run the coax cable through the cab, into the bed? Any answers will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    There are some rubber gromets at the back of the cab, between the bed and the cab. I poked a hole in the rubber and shoved the cable through it. I am adding a connector to the end after running the cable. This allows for the smallest hole possible, and the rubber gromet holds tight around the cable to make a water tight seal.

    I can post pictures if you want.

    OK, ok, I won't make you beg. Here are the pictures.

    Here is the grommet that I am going to use.

    I pulled out the grommet and used a sharp tool to poke a hole into it.

    I shoved my needle nose pliers through the hole.

    And grabbed a hold of the wire.

    Slide the grommet over the wire.

    Finally put the grommet back into the hole.

    Its water tight and you don't have to drill any holes in your truck. Now I ran the cable under the right rear door floor panel to the center compartment. There is already a channel with wires under that floor panel with room for 1 more wire...

    There are also several of those plugs on the floor of the truck that you can use. Just get under your truck and start looking for one that is near you want to bring the wire into the truck.

    Good pics and techniques.

    On the bed rail behind the window. I cut a truck mirror antenna mount to fit.

    Similar to this guy...
