    Hey Guys, just in the middle of installing my CB and so far i got the antenna mounted and coaxial cable ran down along the frame. I'm running the cable along the driver side and i figure i may as well go up through the rubber grommet underneath the driver seat. So my question is this...

    Did you guys remove the seat (?) to give you room to access the hvac vent and and run the cable from the grommet to the vent?

    or is there another way to run the cable without removing the seat or from a different access point, etc?

    What did everyone exactly do to run there cable into the cab?

    I should also mention that i'm going to be mounting my cb in the compartment located between the front seats....
    Thanks for the help!

    Thanks for the help Jhodge83...

    I got it all figured out now. I removed the DS door sill and seat bolts so that my hand could fit and slide easily under the carpet over to the grommet. I took the grommet out and cut an X pattern so that i could slide the cable in. Then seated the grommet and pulled the cable out of hole where the vents are. I then went from the vents to the center console. So its all installed now.

    I went with a Cobra 19 for space reasons but with the cable attached to it on a straight angle from the back i've noticed i can't fit the unit standing straight up in the compartment.

    oh well, this is just temporary for the upcoming SONTT trail run next weekend, but for a more permanent CB i think i may go with a Cobra 75...
    Of course, the positive n negative wire from the CB is too short to reach the battery so i guess i gotta pop over to radio shack for some more wire...
