Default How to run CB antennae wire from cab to bed

Just bought an '02 with a regular cab, how do I run my CB antennae wire from inside the cab to the bed? Last truck was extended cab and just ran it out under the 3rd door, obviously can't do that now..

there should be vents on each side of the truck on the back cab wall with one way flaps you can run it out but you cant run it in the truck only out of the truck and in the bed there should be two pop out rubber pieces in line with those thats how i ran mine on truck and the plastic piece when you open the door iswhat he is talking about the is holes under there also i just like the vents cause it keeps it strait in line and if you run a 18 foot coax make sure that the excess lenth is wrapped in a figure 8 pattern not in a circle if you got anymore ? just pm i have installed alot of cbs in our work trucks

Ok I found the 2 holes in the bed and understand how to run the wires into those, but I'm still a bit confused as to the door part. I understand how there's rubber running along the edge of the frame, but where do I go from there?
