Default 2012 GMC Sierra Instal

We ran power through the factory gromet and through factory wire loom to the battery.[ATTACH]46619 [/ATTACHName:  uploadfromtaptalk1405329958131.jpg

Size:  77.1 KB The Coax was ran under the headliner from directly under the dome light. We used a stinger to pull the coax through. This helps especially because you do not have to drop the head liner. The coax was then routed through the weather stripping on the driver side door and routed behind the fuse box and ran under the carpet with the power and into a small 3/4 in. hole that was drilled in the locking center console under the center seat.Name:  uploadfromtaptalk1405329967545.jpg

Big thanks to John N0XG for helping greatly with the install. Couldn't have drilled a hole in my shiny new truck by myself!

I'd cut out the unused bundled coax.

Really nice to see an install on a newer Sierra, I can't find to many threads on them. Looks good!

73's.

That interior looks just like my 2013 Silverado, except the center rest which is different.

How well does the Wouxon work? I've been looking at them but haven't pulled the trigger yet. Will it also do Alpha-Numeric?

The Wouxun works great! I would get it from universal-radio. It's about 100 bucks cheaper on there and yes it will do Alpha-Numeric Display!

If I may ask, where did you run the wires through? Yes you say factory gromet but honestly where was it located? I have a 2011 Sierra and the only gromet I was able to find in the dash was under the steering wheel right behind my fuse box, which would require me to disassemble my fuse box to use that gromet. What I did was run my wires under the cab through an existing hole capped off (for a future gromet use).

Did they fix the issue with the aircraft band and it's now AM instead of FM? Thanks for the info!

The Gromet that was used was just behind and above a black box just to the right of the fuse box. A few small cuts with a pocket knife made just enough room to get power through.

I have no idea I don't really listen to Air Band so I wouldn't know.

Seriously? That's a pretty fundamental mistake.
