    I personally havent done it, but i have seen it there before. The wires were run in the headlinner and down the "A" pillar. and under the dash. He mounted his Antenna on a bracket he made on his tool box. He ran the antenna wire through the firewall and down the frame rail and back up between the cab and the bed to the mount. I would run a relay to the CB. There is a possitive post on the fuse box. And there is an ignition switch female plug in the fuse box as well. Sorry I dont have any pictures of his truck.

    It looked really clean.

    Here's a pic of my buddy's tow rig, antennas mounted on tool box. Remember that aluminum doesn't ground so you have to ground the antenna(s) to the bed.

    I need to find a different spot due to the camper shell, any other ideas for duals?
