    I hear ya. I bought a new Toyota Tundra Crew max two years ago and it is still without radio gear. I want at least 2m/70cm and would like HF as well.My dilemma has been antenna mounting locations. Can't do a roof mount because of the power sunroof . Can't do a stake hole mount due to the tonneau cover. Will not even consider a hitch mount as they are a poor excuse for a poor excuse for HF and I use the hitch fairly often anyway. An extension off the bumper is a possibility for HF but not really appealing for VHF. I should have it figured out by the time I trade it in. :LOL:

    I am not going to wait 2 years....just until the new car smell goes away.
    At least there are no truck payments and my insurance actually came down a tad.
    I thought about a Nissan Frontier or Toyota Tacoma but the Ford was only $500 more and has the same EPA fuel economy rating.
    Car dealers really get somber when you have no trade in to get raped on.

    To be truthfull mobile radio operation is not important to me any more. There was a time when I spent a LOT of time on the road but now work is only four minutes from home, hardly enough time to make a single contact.

    Your gonna love driving that truck. I bought a new 2014 F-150 XLT 4x4 about three weeks ago and I still go out at night sometimes and just sit in it :) I'm used to driving small cars and trucks so the F-150 is awesome. Can't wait to drive it to the coast of NC in two weeks.
