    Totally right. My last post was misleading.

    Hey Robtor, do you know if there is a way to route a power wire from the driver/passenger footwell (aux switch) up to the dashboard storage area (on top of the center radio/AC cluster)? I'm thinking about mounting a radio on top of there using one of the Builtright dash mounts (https://www.builtrightind.com/products/builtright-industries-dash-mount-2015-ford-f-150) but I'm not sure if there is a way to route power in there.

    Thanks for the info on routing the antenna wire through the fenders and up through that floor grommet; I think I will do the same thing!

    Im pretty sure there is a path. I would begin by taking the speaker tray out and taking the glove box out. Tape the wires to a straitened hanger and attempt to fish them through the dash from the tray to the glove box area. If you get em to pop through there then it should be an easy route to the foot well from the glovebox.

    In regards to the grommet. Make sure you re seal that back up good!

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the help! I'll give that a try.
    Can you tell me which one of the EZN antenna mounts you bought (long/short and which antenna mount), also where did you get your wire from that goes from the antenna to the radio?

    Im 99% sure it was a model #910 Long. I also have one in the other stake pocket for my safety whip flag thing...

    The wire was purchased from Ham Radio Outlet in Anaheim CA. Great store, but I see you're a ways from there. They also do mail order. https://www.hamradio.com/ Just give them a call.
