If I were you, I'd hook the power source directly to the battery. There should be a plug like rubber thing near your brakes. Take that out and run your wire from the cb radio to the battery. This way the truck doesn't have to be turned on to talk. Just make sure that you turn the cb radio off each time you use it or you'll drain the battery.

SOURCE: how to set up the cobra 19 DX IV CB Radio

first keep the manualhandy for the radio and antenna you are using. start by finding a good mounting point for the radio. install the bracket and cheeck the fit with the radio. next run the included power cord from the back of the radio to the fuse box. don't plug it into the radio yet. take the black wire and ground it to metal. try to find a screw goofyinto the metalof the car and loosen it, wrap the wire o. it and tighten it. next find thefuse for the stereo. pull it out and press I back inwith the red wire getting pushed into the fuse socket with the fuse. now you can plug in the radio. IMPORTANT! do not plug it in backwards. if you do you will blow out a diode in the radio and it will not turn on until repaired. turn the key on and then the radio. make sure it powers up BUT DO NOT KEY THE RADIO YET or you will damage it. the radio must never be keyed withough an antenna connected. mount the antenna as close to center of the car as possible le and according to theantennas instructions. run the coax to the radio and connect it tightly. now you need to tune the antenna for best SWR. there is a section in the radios manual and the antenna.manual that explains how to do this. rather then me type it all out you should have detailed I.structins already. if not know and I will ppart it. after the swr is tuned for lowest you are ready to talk on the radio. enjoy.
