CB Antenna coax routing
Stonewood posted a topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsI successfully routed my CB antenna coax through the rear cabin vent that is located behind the right rear passenger seat. I found this YouTube video by Fondupot's Garage helpful. Easy Rear Seat Removal - 2014-2017 GM Double Cab 1st. Remove the four nuts and two 10mm bolts securing right rear passenger seat in place. 2nd. Lift the seat up so the bracket on the back of the seat is clear of its receptacle. 3rd. Gain access to the vent located behind the insulating material. 4th. Route the coax down between the bed and the cab . I used a closed zip tie to grab the coax connector and pull it through the vent into the cab. 5. Remove the plastic cap in the forward right side of the bed. Route the coax through the bed. My magnetic base antenna just sits in in the bed so it clears the garage door. There is enough slack in the coax to place the antenna on top of the cab for long distance travels. 6. Route the coax underneath the floor mats up to the CB. That's my Uniden Bearcat 880. After the install, I took my other toy out to play in the snow. Cheers to all. I hope this helps.
