Well, I needed to figure out how to mount an antenna on the new truck. Definitely no holes! And magnet mounts scratch the paint. So I mounted it in one of the boards in the bed. Simple project for a Saturday and if the Huskie puppy would have stayed home, Hank and I would have enjoyed the afternoon. SWR came out to about 2:1 Not too bad I guess.
The truck bed before installation:

All painted and installed
