TRUCKSPEC 18′ Antenna Coax Cable with PL-259 Connectors.

Top Positive Review

i guess its a quality cable. it doesnt feel cheap or anything. that hard part was getting the connector through the tail gate of my jeep. i ended up not routing it through anything and just passint it between the back window and tailgate. it went from the tire rack to the passanger seat of my JKUR with some to spare. i did run it along the floor and carpet and not along the roll bars.

Top Critical Review

Had this cable on my truck for six months. It was ran to a mount on the side of my truck toolbox. After original installation there were no problems. S.w.r. was excellent, quality seemed good. Drove through some brush and a stick ripped the cable from the connector. That was totally my fault.
But when I went to solder a new connector on, the outer wire braid was completely corroded. Stripped the insulation back a good two feet before I found bright shiny wire. Obviously some water intrusion into the cable end. Now, I realize you get what you pay for. Spend the money for a good cable. This one will probably work fine if it’s never exposed to the elements. If it is, you might get a year out of it.
