    Hi, I'm installing a cb radio in my '10 double-cab Tacoma, and looking for a place to run my coax into the cab from the antenna in the bed. I couldn't really find any grommets on the back wall of the cab. Are there any on the bottom floor, and what exactly do they look like? Do you just pop it out, or cut a hole and run the coax through?
    By the way, I just bought this antenna mount from REP Designs...it came today and I haven't installed it yet, but it looks like it will be great for the Tacoma. I didn't see this mount discussed anywhere yet so I thought I'd mention it in case anyone else is looking for something similar.

    On the bottom of the cab on the drivers side there is a grommet that goes into the cab. Split it to the middle and run the coax through there. I suggest though that after you put it back in that you seal it up good with RTV Silicone sealant to prevent any leaks.

    Great, thanks! So I won't be damaging any other wires or such by making a hole in that rubber grommet?
