Got my ham radio and cb installed

I've had my Jeep for two weeks now, and today installed my Midland cb and Yaesu ft1900r 2 meter ham radio. 3 ft Firestick antenna next to the drivers tail light for the cb and a Diamond 2m/70cm antenna with NMO mount on the brakelight. Took a minute to figure out where to run the antenna coax but both were very easy. CB antenna though the tail light (drilled a hole on the bottom and stuck a grommet in there, then coax, then sealed it), ham antenna through a grommet behind the spare tire. Both radios wired directly to the battery, fed the power wires through a grommet on the drivers side firewall. A neighbor walked up and gasped "YOU'RE DRILLING HOLES IN YOUR NEW JEEP????!!!!". He ain't seen nothing yet!
