Man Shane....your truck was tiny back then.

Here is my setup. I stole Shanes hood mounting idea (that, and my dad just laughed at my tool box mount), and mine is also mounted under the dash, like Shanes was:

Exactly. My Ranger is stock, but because of the visor and stickers, I am body lifted, AND have cranked torsion bars, and have about 30,000 RWHP (for those canadians on the bored, that would be 600,000,000 RWKPHA (rear wheel kilometers per hour adders).

Mine is bolted to the bottom of the box then through the grommet in the front of the bed, then along the frame passenger side frame rail to one of the grommets in the floor pans then up through the slice in the floor that the pre-tensioner comes through under the floor mat and to the CB works out rather well.

down through the grommet on the front of the bed, then along the frame til i hit a grommet in the cab floor, now we're in the cab...under the carpet, under the dash, up the a-pillar, then above the headliner and plugged into the radio. 18' is perfect!
