Default CB Antenna Mounting Location

So my boss has his antenna mounted between the bed and the cab of his Ram 2500

I like the way it looks and I want to put an antenna there but obviously it's going to be a little different with my Ranger compared to his Ram. I looked at the spacing between the cab and bed on mine and there's not a lot of wiggle room.

Anyone else done this type of mount before?

If i had a picture of mine I would post it, but its basically the same set up as the guy above me, it works well, just get yourself 18 feet of coax cable to bring in into the cab, theres a small hole under the passenger side floorpan where you can run the wire all the way up so its hidden and no drilling required!

Yeah, what he said, I ran my cable though the steering shaft hole in the firewall, since I have my cb mounted under the ashtray it's perfect for me.

Inside the tailgate channel, with a homemade stainless steel mount.

I made a braket that bolts to the tail gate latch.
