    How/where do you radio guys run the antenna coax into the truck? I don't want to run through a window or door seal. Are there any grommets at or near the rear of an 08 DC?

    Any pics of where you have run it through?

    Thanks,

    There are a couple of rubber gromets on the underside of the truck. You can follow the frame right to them. One is under the left side of the driver seat. :)

    I wound up using a Wilson 5000 mag mount in the center of the cab roof. I ran the coax into the cab by way of the slider window.
