    Default Help with antennas

    I know that I have seen a thread on this before. I have a 2005 Silverado Crew Cab 4X4 and I am looking to mount 2 antennas on my tool box and need some ideas on how to get the cables into the cab. I looked at the vents on the back but with them being one-way in the opposite direction that I would need to run the cable I don't think it will work. Also any ideas on where to mount a VHF and CB radio in the cab that are easy to access by the driver but don't leave big ugly holes in case I resell?

    If it were my truck I'd go down to frame (Between box and cab) then along frame, up firewall and in cab from firewall area. (There is some big gromets around steering column to run in.) Then use vaseline or silicone grease to pop the grommet back in (there kinda a bitch it get in and out)...Good luck

    I'd run the cables like Jamie suggested.
    For a place to put the radios have you looked at "Shelf-it" it's an overhead shelf that uses existing holes and mounts at the top of the windshield.
    You can run the wires up the inside of the windshield trim.
    Shelf-it can be found on the J C Whitney web site.
