cb antenna placement

ok so i put my cb antenna on my truck, i thinks it looks ok but my buddys said it's dumb lol.

But how many feet of cable should i need ? i have 12 ft but that is going to be to short .

so for the people that ran their cb the same way, how many feet should i need to run it to my dash?

i would just use a piece of string to see how long i would need but it is f$%^ing cold out side here and i'm sure some one knows off the top of there head how many feet.
