    I'm not new to driving, but new to CB radios
    I can figure out how to install, but I'm not too sure what to do about the antenna
    I'm not sure where the last driver has this wire routed
    Also, what is that in the middle?

    The yellow appears to be labeled with a white tag. red and black are normally powered but check with a circuit tester before hooking up your radio. Check your swr before hooking up the radio as factory coax may be bad or disconnected.

    I'm not entirely sure what the yellow is

    The “usual” arrangement is:

    Coax

    Twin-lead power

    External speaker jack.

    But there ain’t quite no telling what you have there past coax. If the twin lead was cut, buy the factory replacement at dealer counter.

    Red lead could be anything. Camera. Speed detector. Purple good buddy windshield shield lamps, etc.
