Before I go drilling a hole, does anybody have any issues with lost signal having it under the fiberglass cap? I guess I just have to make sure it isn't under the satellite dome.

I don't have any issue, but I don't know where your rooftop devices are as compared to mine. I would try the non drill solutions first, you can always drill later if you are not happy with the results.

Thanks for all the help. The original XM antenna wire had two wires; a black and brown, and no connector at the end. I just couldn't tell how it was routed from the roof to the back of the radio. As suggested, I mounted the new XM antenna inside, wedged between the front cap and fiberglass insulation and the front cap, then routed the wire down the left pillar. The reception is good.
