There's two ways to my mind.
1. Drill a hole.
2. Mag or clamp mount.
In the first case, you could do like I did with my VHF transceiver antenna and drill the center of the roof. If you have an extended cab it's easy because you can do it just over the dome light and not have to fuss with the headliner. Then the cable is already in the truck and you remove some roof trim on one side, fish a coat hanger or snake in over to the dome light area, and pull your antenna wire over to the side. Then you can run it along the trim and down the a-pillar (windshield pillar) or down the b-pillar (behind the door) and then under the lower trim or rug or whatever to where you need it.
I have a LOT of antenna's on my truck.
In case 2, you can put something on the roof and either just let it get squeezed in the door seal, or you can notch your third brake light and bring it in through there.
That's my thoughts on it. I'm all for drilling but I LIKE putting holes in my truck so with me it's pathological...
