    You can always drill one I don't know of any hole in the back of the cab.

    If you don't want to drill a hole you can run it through the firewall and then put a lip mount on the hood.

    I drilled and put an NMO mount on the roof of my truck with the radio under the front passenger seat with the cable run behind the trim of the door post.

    naw man there are 2 plastic plugs. just take a look at the lower bit of the back of the cab under your bed. or if you look in the tool-box thingers in the cab you will be able to see the plugged.

    I've also wondered about the little vents that are visible on the back of the cab between it and the bed... do those go through?

    There is two holes on each side of the cab, with plugs in them. I have my truck all apart, I can take pictures for you if you want. There are several plugs in the floor too that you could use, but the big plugs are just covers for the cab mount blot heads, they dont go thru.
