Do you want to do it right or do you want to do it the way most lazy asses do it?

Go to ace hardware or your local hardware store and get a rubber grommet from their little drawer section of nicknacks in the back where they sell loose items and drill through the cab where you want to run the wire. The rubber grommet is designed to be used in such case to keep the wire from getting cut, but most people don't bother to even make a small hole with a drill, they run it through the damn window or something. Uhg.......

Find a CB shop, Truck stop, or god help you Radio Shack. Visit their CB stuff. It's pretty self explanatory, then again I a bit more than a beginner.
