I am thinking about putting a 2m rig (Yaesu) in my truck. I already have a Yaesu FT-8800R in my Jeep Wrangler. The truck has a manual transfercase shifter on the floor. The truck also has cup holders on the floor in front of the center console (middle seat). I was wondering where the best place to mount the radio? Please keep in mind that m wife drives the truck and cannot be too outlandish.
I also have a question on what antenna to use. My wife uses a parking garage, at times, paid for by her work. So I need a setup that can either be easily removed or fold over. The parking garage is low. The truck is at stock ride height with factory wheels and tire size. With that being said, I left a K40 Antenna magnet mount on the roof and the parking garage hit the mount and slid it to the back of the cab until the mount fell off. I had thought about a 1/4 wave 19" antenna roof mounted but with the parking paid for, that might be a tough road to go down.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
