I have to find somewhere to remount mine, thinking about drilling into the new truck makes me cringe tho.
theres loads of places to mount the antenna that don't drill into the truck, gutter mounts just clamp on, so do mirror mounts or the usual spare wheel rack mount so popular with jeepers or a magnetic mount placed on the cab roof or fender or bumper will do the trick, (quick tip for magmpunts....cover the base that touches the roof with felt or a soft material) that way the paint doesnt get scratched when you move it or if it gets knocked by a branch etc, as for inside the cab, mounting the "rig" or actual cb, for those who arent as old as me and remember the convoy film haha, you dont need to drill, to get the antenna wire inside, you can....run it through the door opening, the rubber will seal around it and it wont affect the closing of the door, or find a rubber grommet that comes into the vehicle cab and ease the wire through that, or there are glass mount antennas that stick on the glass, and the signal goes through the glass from the outer antenna to the inner pick up ,,,so thats the antenna, ...power well thats as simple as wiring in a radio so wont insult you by
going over that, mounting the cb itself without drilling holes, can be anything from wedging it between the seat cushions, to putting it out of site in the glove box, or if you have an overhead compartment put it there, Mine...is mounted inside a steel ammo box wit the stereo so that when i leave the vehicle the lid can be closed keeping people from seeing what goodies are in my vehicle, to mount the ammo box i used 2 flat steel L brackets bolted to existing bolts on the seat frame and the box bolted to them..no holes drilled BOOM job done hahah, hope this helps,
