Just sayin' man . . .
First off, just run as much coax as you need to make it from point "A" to point "B". With just a couple extra feet of wiggle room for good measure. Forget about all of that BS about how long a piece of coax needs to be. Get yourself a Predator antenna, use a puck mount and cut the sheet metal in the center of the roof of the cab, run some LMR-240UltraFlex/RG-58 coax, and be done with your SWR problem. Or a mag mount Wilson 5000 too . . .
BTW - if you run more than the Texas Star recommended power into that amp (20 watts/25 max), you will defeat the AB class amplification you bought that amp for.
