Rtv the 3rd brake light mount to cab and using OEM foam seal on light seems to be fine no leaks so far. Foam that comes applied to the mount is a bit cheesy.

Give Keith at LVJ Motorsports to get sorted out with antennas and mounts http://lvjmotorsports.com

As for your radio, you are going to have to do the TX band mod to make it work on GMURs and business band frequencies: Icom ID-4100 modification wide band TX by Marcus PA2DB

Defiantly get your ham license. Free repeater usage. Always someone on in case of emergency.
