Alright I just bought a Cobra 18 and going with the wilson " little wil " antenna which the the magent type. Ive been doing some searching on here to find out where/how to run antenna wire but really couldnt find an answer. Ideas or pics of how you ran the antenna from the roof? drill holes? go threw the little square black antenna type thing on the newer trucks?...any help would be great thanks:thumbsup:

Mine is run through the rubber grommet in the fire wall for the cab wiring, under the cab, and back up between the bed and cab.

I cut a slot in the edge of my 3rd brake light and ran it down behind the plastic trim then under the drivers seat and over to the CB mounted on the side of the center console/shifter cover. then I put some black silicone were it ran behind the light.:thumbsup:

I ran my sirrus wire through the headliner and brake light. was pretty easy to do once you figure out how to get the liner down without braking stuff. It comes down easy as well. its a very nice clean install that way. I dn't think the wire for the antenna is much heavier then the sirrus antenna wire.

keep in mind over a period of time a magnet mount will wear into the clearcoat and then into the paint on your truck.



last year I was sitting in an old service truck, I noticed the truck was peeing on my head, the antenna had worn through the paint causing the sheet metal to rust through:lol4:
