If you are into communications and want to eliminate a lot of the static that comes in through the system, you can add grounds straps to everything movable, I.e. doors to body, tail gate to body, hood to body, he's even the plastic ones. Brd straps and cab straps are a must too as you said.
Also, the antenna mounts and the radio chassis along with the blk power wire that should go to the battery with the red one.
I use 3/8" braided straps added to all of the above places, does it help, not really sure but I talk a lot on the HAM Radio without any problems but that ins FM not AM.
Luck on your project.
