Even with an extra pair of hands and using the tricks I've found on YouTube and the various Ford truck boards, it just will not budge.
I don't want to be stuck with a magnetic mount, so what say ye? (And pics would be nice if you have a extended cab F150 around that year model and you have solved this problem).
I have a 09 F150 Super Cab and even tho I don't have the radio in it yet, I don't see any problem of routing the coax.
I will be installing a Wilson 5000 here shortly, it will go through the roof and the coax will come straight down through the headliner. Then I will us Velcro to fasten it to the headliner and route it over to side by the window.
No firewall and no back of cab holes.
