Trimble satellite cable.

How difficult is it to short the cable from the roof into the cab.  Can it be done without special tools?

Re: Trimble satellite cable.

You want to cut the cable, feed it into the cab via the roof and then put a new co-ax end on it?  That's what I understand from your post.  I bought an EZ Guide last year and just fed the cable under the roof (roof opens up like a hood on a car - it's a Ford) into the cab and attached it to the unit.  Was planning on cutting it later but never did.  Then had a branch smack the receiver off the roof breaking the co-ax connector off so I had to put a new end on.  I went to our local Radio Shack and got the proper end and crimped it on.  Not much different than putting co-ax ends on in a house for the TV - I have the tool for that.  You can kind of butcher it up with a regular set of pliers but it will crimp good enough and work.
