Recommended Posts

I need some ideas so I'm interested to see pictures of what anyone has done with any custom installations of Ham Radio, CB Radio and antennas on their 2014 Silverado.

I Bought my 2015 Sierra about a week ago and I have been working this over in my mind. I have the Console in the middle which I love. I think I have a solution but cant figure out how to get my wires into the console without too much damage.

I started an install of my yaseu ft8800 today. I installed the radio under the back seat in the bracket where the jack goes (jack going in tool box now). Got my wires run to the battery, but now I need to figure out how to hook up 12v.

 

Never seen a battery with so many posts to pull power from. If any one had experience with this, you input would be appreciated.

Would you be able to share pictures inside your cab? I'd also like to get more information (or see pictures) from your auxiliary battery install.

Bought my 2015 last Saturday, and have been plotting the installation of my CB and antenna ever since.

Here's mine, maybe a little different then what's wanted but it works great with an excellent SWR. Just got to ground the antenna sense it's attached to an aluminum tool box.

A neat little bracket to mount the CB without drilling any holes is use the Hump Mount brackets, I saw on Amazon for $7.29. I used this in a few different trucks and it works great - very sturdy and does not slide around unless you hit giant bumps.

 

Go to Amazon and search:

PROCOMM JBC1000 Universal Hump Mount - Sawtooth design

 

And for me, I used Wilson 5000 Magnet mount Antennae, I put mine right in the middle of the roof. It worked great.

That's good to know, I had seen this before but couldn't find it. I was worried about it sliding but I'm glad to hear you have had good luck with it.

      Hello!
       
      I have a Sierra Denali 2019 6.2L - I apologize for not knowing much as I got the truck from my brother and never owned a truck before in my life!
       
      I would like to install two antennas on the rear stake pockets and bring the coaxial cables into the cabin. cables are 1/4 inch each. There is a also a small control cable for the tarheel antenna. I don't plan to connect the radios to the Car Batteries as I have separate batteries for radio use.
       
      I would like to know if there are some sort of documentation or drawings that shows where I can check for the cable entry points to the cabin from the rear to bring these cables into the cabin and the precautions I need to do and best practices to seal the entry points to prevent dust and stuff.
       
      any help would be appreciated. 
       
      Thanks...

      Hi, I like to install two antennas in my 2019 Silverado Crew Cab I'm looking at no-drill mounts was looking at the  
      Valley Enterprises Fender Mount Antenna Bracket 3/4 Inch NMO for Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 2019-2021  but wanted to ask if anyone found a coax cable route that does not require any drilling thru the firewall? any help would be Appreciated

      Any ideas where to run the coax cable and where to mount cb for the least amount of interior damage thank you for your suggestions

      I'm really wanting to install my CB and scanner into my 2018 truck.  Was hoping to do it the same way that I had them in my 2015, see attached pictures.  But with the 2016 and up, the cupholder does NOT move.  Not too worried about the antenna or the antenna cable, as much as I am about where I'm going to put my CB and Scanner, now.  If you've got them, flaunt them.
