    Good morning. I have a brand new 2011 Taco. I am a ham radio operator. I am looking for a way of getting my coax into the truck from the mag mount. I presently have it snaked down the back of driver side rear door of the accesscab and into the cab. Do not use that door much and that is my best option right now. I DO NOT want to drill any holes yet. Mama would kill me!!! :eek: Still looking for other places and ways to mount the antenna. Any suggestions? Please send pic's if you can.

    The 2010 has a hole in the floor under the far left side of the driver's seat, under the carpet. It comes from the factory with a rubber plug in it. You can get the coax into the cab there.

    From there, you can run to the wire channel under the driver's side door scuff plate, or anywhere else you want.

    Check my sig for NMO mount installation in the roof, (ham radio install thread) and the location of one rubber grommet under the floor (CB radio install thread)
