To get the best send/recieve signal, your antenna needs to clear the highest point by no less than 1/2 to 2/3 of it's length. So, if your antenna is 4 ft long, about 2-2.5 feet need to clear the top of the cab. Also, the placement of the antenna will effect your reception. If it is nearer the rear of the vehicle, you'll have better reception in front of you and the reverse is true. Your best bet is having the antenna in the middle of the truck, like near the cab, and having the antenna clear the top of the cab by about 2 ft. I have mine mounted on the headache rack. It's a 4 footer and clears the cab by about 3.25 ft.
