    Where can I pick 2 up for the mirrors??
    Where does the factory coax wire go to?
    Can Antannas be mounted behind bunk?

    Without knowing the year of your truck if you dont see antennas on the side of the cab then the antenna is integrated into the roof, good for about 3 miles of range. If you wanted to use the Wilson brackets , they sell those in most truck stops or there are other brands that typically sell in cb shops. If you are leaning to go that route there are several threads about Cascadia Antennas on this forum that have been posted over the past several years.

    I tried searching for posts about Cascadia mirror Antannas mounts but to no avail.
    The Cascadia is a 2020 not sure when they changed the mirrors.
    I have the radio hooked to factory coax and nothing but static is all I hear.
    Have not tried the mic yet for fear of damage.

    They could be mounted underneath the vehicle dragging on the ground but that doesn't mean they'll work very well under that set of circumstances. Just because you can bolt it to something doesn't mean it's going to function correctly.

    Think of your out going signal as a rock in a bucket just goin nowhere and just maken noise..If your pulling a flat bed well then you will have signal all behind you but no range infront..
