    Has anyone done this to their tacoma? I can't figure out how to mount the antenna nicely. I don't want to drill any holes or modify something I can't remove.

    I've seen some clamp and magnetic types but not for a while, you would still have to run the wire outside somehow with one of those though

    I have a stainless mount that fits in the gap between the hood and fender on the driver's side on my Taco. I used an existing hold in the channel to bolt the mount to the fendor and added two screws inside the channel. I will have to take some pictures of it. I am not one for drilling extra holes, but these are down in the hood channel out of sight. It can be removed and you would never know an antenna was mounted to my truck.
