Hacks for a Professional DIY Install in a Truck.
Before you install a cellular amplifier in your truck, try the following five tips. They will save you time and frustration. An important thing to know is that as long as outside antenna is securely fastened to the roof of your vehicle, and it is connected to inside antennas and power inside the vehicle, you can't go wrong. The tips in this video are meant for those who want a pro quality install. These tips will vary from truck to truck. However, with some slight modifications, you should be able to use any of these tips in whichever truck you own.
TIP 1: SOFT INSTALL.
One of the most frustrating things you can run into when installing a signal booster is to get everything all installed, only to find out that your cables won't reach. Then you can't connect all the components together. A soft install will alleviate this problem. It will save you lots of time and frustration. What is a soft install? A soft install is simply putting the different components where you think you want them, then running the cable, measuring it out, and making sure that everything will fit before you permanently install them. A soft install only takes a few minutes but will save you lots of time and aggravation afterwards.
TIP 2: PRO INSTALL - OUTSIDE ANTENNA.
One of the easiest ways to get a professional-looking install outside of your truck is to hide the cables. A good way to do that is to run it underneath the light. Any type of antenna will work with this. It does not matter which type you have got. The process will be the same. All you have to do is just remove the screws, holding the light in place, and then you just pull the light back. Depending on your light, you may need to remove some more pieces depending on the style of truck that you have. For example, take the cable, and run it right around the trim of the light, all the way underneath. Then feed the rest of the cable back down into the truck, and then replace the light.
TIP 3: RUN CABLE UNDER WEATHER STRIPPING.
Pull the weather stripping down to make room to insert the cable. Insert the cable, and then push the weather seal right back up into place. That keeps it nice and neat - out of the way of everything. This way, it won't get tangled up. Once inside the truck, run the cable underneath the inner lip of the weather seal. It is easy to run it along the ceiling and then down the door and down to the floor.
TIP 4: HIDE CABLES.
Continuing with our hide the cable theme, continue cable on to the floor. Run the cables under the mat, the seat, or even the carpet. Basically, keep them nice and neat - out of the way, so they are not a tripping hazard. That also makes your truck look much cleaner.
TIP 5: THE RIGHT TOOLS.
Our final tip is to use the right tools. Zip ties are your friend when it comes to installations. A zip tie gun can make the job so much easier. There're a number of models to choose from. If you don't already have one, we highly recommend picking one up at the local hardware store. You will find yourself using it all the time. Also, speaking of zip ties, the little mounts come in really handy, depending on your installation. They can be used to keep the cable right where you want it when there isn't something to tie it to.
