Icon2 CB Radio Help

I need a lot of help installing this thing. I bolted it on to the bed behind the drivers seat and im trying to figure out the best way to wire it into the cab. i heard of a little grommet under the driver's seat? also i'd like to get some mounting ideas. I was thinking of probably under the dash right in front of the stick. So post some pics of your cb setups! (2008 regular cab)

...You mounted it outside of the cab why?

Or I'm guessing you mounted it to the back wall of the CAB, not the bed.

run the coax under the truck and into the cab, probably the neatest way to get it in there.

lol no problem. Run it neatly along the frame rail, it'll be hidden. I just ran wiring from the rear of the bumper and both sides of the truck along the frame rail last week and it looks great that way which is why i suggest going under the truck lol
