Default ID-880H Antenna Suggestions

Im taking my ham test this Saturday and I recently received an Icom ID-880H. Ive never dealt with dual-band transceivers, only scanners. I would just like to receive suggestions on what would be a good antenna for this radio, i really dont want to drill holes in my truck so I would prefer other types of mounts before that option

This probably is one of the best mobile antennas ever made and you can hear local and distant repeaters as well.
