Running CB wire

So I am looking for a place to run my CB wire to the back of ext. cab.

Is there any place to run the wire from the bed of the truck to the jump seats in the back? I am tired of my CB up front so I am going to move it in the back and mount it to my sub box.

Any thoughts would help.

i ran my wire down the back of the cab, under the cab, along the frame and up through a plug in the floor in front of the seat.

On my 03 ext cab , looking under the truck at the door post , I found a rubber plug and just cut a small 'X' in it to run the coax through.
A little difficult to get to inside the cab as you need to go through the pocket behind the jump seat to reach it.

He's probably talking about the coax and his antenna is probably mounted in the back of the truck unless he has a battery back there for a power wire to go to...
