Update: Going for the center of the roof and will use mag mount or glass antenna and pigtail when hauling stuff on the roof.
The channels down by the doors make great raceways for wires and such...Hidden under the door jam panels etc. out of harms way. My FT-8800 is located in the PS rear compartment (attached to a FZJ80 subwoofer bracket I picked up from a guy on MUD) and my faceplate is in the front just under where the ashtray would be (but where my CB is). I ran the cable from the separation kit from the transceiver in the PS rear all the way to the front in the channel down the passenger side.

You could run your antenna cable the same way, but up the DS I'm thinking. Or if you're drilling a hole through the roof then you could run it across the headliner and then down the B or C pillar and then up to the front.
