pull the carpet/flooring and look under the drivers side pedals, like where your feet should go. theres a little rubber gasket that seals the hole for the body bolt. remove it and cut a notch in it so your wire can fit through the notch and then run it to whereever the cb is mounted.

Might help if you were more specific about what your truck is besides "the truck".

sorry about that its a 2001 ranger 3.0 v6 not xlt or anything simple. just my first truck. was dad's work truck for his job but once it hitted 150,000 we bought from the owner. just trying to make it look better on the inside and out. i have a 36" magnetic antenna and an old 1980's uniden cb along with a mic. this winter i had it routed from the bed into the door but didnt like the look so i have been invesigating for a place to come into the truck
