You can buy the aluminum mount for the mirror run the coax through the door. Drill a small hole in the plastic cover for the mirror to feed the coax through. With in 30 minutes your done.

The mount costs about 10 bucks at any local truck stop.

I've seen a few trucks with the fiberglass bed covers where they drilled a whole in the top of the rear bumper and mounted antennas in front of tail lights so not to interfere with tailgate. Didn't look bad.

has any one tried to place a mount between the cab and the box. I use to have them mounted to the box and like the look but i need a cover now.

Go to the hardware store. You can get a piece of flat stock that is rigid enough. Mount it to the front of the box on the top rail closest to the cab. Then drill a hole and mount the antenna to that.

I have a L bracket that is set up like this with my 102" stainless steel whip mounted to it. Sorry I have no pictures currently of this.
