Right behind the cab on the drivers side (opposite side of radio antenna) is best on our trucks... don't run dual because our trucks are not big enough for them

here's a pic of mine



and here is a video i posted in another thread about how i ran my wire... i only used 9' of coax, it is best to keep the wire in the truck as much as possible to cut down on static

click the pic to play video
