Dropping headliner
I am contemplating installing a 2m ham radio, which will need a roof mounted antenna, i.e. drilling the roof. Any tips on removing or dropping the headliner to drill and run the coax?

Take all the plastic trim around the edge of the headliner off. Take off the visors and map lights. Dome light. If it's an extended cab you gotta take off the plastic above the jump seats. It's easier to remove the headliner if you take out the back window and remove and reinstall the headliner through the back window.

I've gotten mine out through the door opening. I thing I had to bow it. I probably had the seats out at the time. Can't recall exactly, because I've slept since then.

on my former 87 King cab, I drilled the hole through the roof than accessed it by pulling the headliner down slightly behind the sunroof. OF course if you don't have a king cab with a sunroof it may be more involved.

Took mine out of my KC through the passenger door.
Remove all the trim including what’s around the jump seats.
Remove dome lights, front and rear dis connect seat belt bolt on top.
2 push clips hold it toward the center and it drops right out.
I had my PS seat laying flat and it went right out the door.

you might be able to drop it enough without removing it...

Any tips on removing lights/molding/etc? I don't see any screws...
