    Installing cb and antenna on 08 dodge ram. Dodge made it easy, battery, vehicle ground, spot I'm mounting antenna and hole in firewall for cables are all next to each other. Plan on using firestick hood mount that bolts under hood, left side. How do I ground antenna? I know where I want to ground it, but the coax doesn't have a ground wire. I was thinking of a seperate wire and a c shaped adaper between stud and antenna mount.

    Second, I'm running power straight from battery, can I ground the cb straight to vehicle ground? There is a spot next to battery that all grounds are connected to, and then that is groinded to what I presume is the frame.

    I just want all the prework done before I get an actual antenna or cb, as I've heard its 90 percent setup of electrical and antenna mounting/grounding and 10 percent cb
