Cool. Make sure to run the coax thru either the grommet or the drain plug, into the cab.

It's decent. I actually haven't tuned it yet but I was talking to a guy ~ 3 miles Away. Once I tune it I should be able to get out there a bit more. I mostly use it when I go mudding with my buddies.

Do five miles or so should be doable when tuned? I mostly planning on using mine with local people I know, and trips where we have a group of cars with cb radios.

Yah should be totally possibly if you tune it well.

In my regular cab there was one on the drivers side between the door sill and the rear seat bolt. I have heard that the extended cab should have one somewhere near that location.

There is a rubber grommet under your carpet close to the back glass that is how I ran my coax
