    I ran my coax cable through the rubber plug underneath the carpet and passenger seat and then ran it along top of my frame all the way to the bed.

    Do you have a pic where it goes into the bed? I know there are the little rubber pieces, did you just do the X and then cover it in silicone when you were done?

    Sweet man. Thanks. I dont want this big wire hanging in the veiw of my rear window, so I am really curious to see how Tom ran his. Also, Does anyone know if this thing is easily moved? Does it tend to slide around or anything?

    Yeah just run it through your 3rd brake light.

    Its magnetic so it shouldnt move around alot. I would put something between the magnet and the roof to prevent scratches

    There is already a film layer on the bottom of the magnet, I dont know what else to put down that wouldnt effect the magnet. Any ideas? So once I put it in the 3rd brake light just run it along the side I assume?

    its too easy to steal so I never leave it mounted, I have it in the cab. When I do use it, I just throw it on the roof and run the wires between the door and the roof. It only takes 30 seconds.

    I put 3m clear bra on the small area of the roof I put the antenna. I protects the paint more and marks the area of where I tuned the antenna.

    Tom. Did you use any sort of silicone around the coax where you cut on the 3rd brake?
