Coax/CB questions

I will eventually put a CB in my Jeep but for now im just wishing/researching.
I have a '91 YJ and I plan to mount the Antenna on the Stock Tailgate stop.
I'm sure someone else has done this and I would like to know how much coax you had to use without have too much excess coiled up?

RadioShack offers a CB for about $30 Midland® Compact 1001Z 40-ChannelCB Radio - RadioShack.com
Has anyone had any experiences with this radio? good or bad? TIA

You can probably get to anywhere inside the cabin with 18' which is a common length in pre-terminated coax. Contrary to countless sources, you don't have to use an 18' piece of coax to get your antenna tuned. You can learn all you ever wanted to know about coax here; The Ultimate Guide to 11 Meter CB Antennas
