Re: XM radio antenna installation location on a Tundra?
Not sure which truck you have...I have 2003 Tundra Stepside Limited with
power rear window. I ran my Sirius antenna wire from the roof over the
power rear window, through the weather-strip, down the rear seats and under
the door sills and carpet by the pedals. The radio is mounted completely
out of the way under the ignition key (kind of hard for fingertip
control...which makes the remote priceless). It worked great and the wire
is virtually invisible.
And I agree, if you have a chance to sample either service, you would
probably agree it is well worth the money! The clarity of service and
commercial free programming are awesome benefits.
