I was told never to contradict the 'teach', but on higher end models, like for example the Discovery, in 2007, under Driver Convenience, they list 'CB Ready', which means that the antenna is installed. For the Pace Arrow they do not list 'Cb Ready', so they obviously do not prewire. To have a similar cb antenna mounted in the best location, you drill a hole through the fibreglass cap or roof, and mount a good quality cb antenna, and run the coax down the windshield pillar on the side to a cb radio. A proper trimming will ensure a half decent signal. Others have installed antennas on the front side, but a proper or most effective location is on the roof and with a proper ground plane under the antenna. For our previous '04 Discovery we drilled a hole through the cap, near the top centre and passed the cable through a hole in the cap and a hole in a plate of metal shelving that we glued to the inside of the fibreglass, and grounded to the frame. We then ran the cable to the cb by going down the inside of the right pillar. A quarter wave Wilson trimmable antenna worked quite well. This is not a quick or simple installation because removal of the centre tv and the pillar cover is required but since cb reception is marginal, at best, doing it right gives the best result, eh.
