I have CX-4600-T too. Mine gets way hot as well, I had a mod kit installed n it swings 215W peak power now. But the excessive heat is annoying, I think mine does have a fan in it though cause I know I felt air coming out the back before.

if your swr is higher on 1 then on 40 then your antenna is electrically short and you have to lenghten the antenna.If it is higher on 40 then on 1 then it is long and you have to shorten it.

many trucks have a ground wire in the harness as the cabins are fibre glass or not grounded around the cabin mounts If the radio grounds out through the frame , then there would be no ground for the radio or the aerial wire to fit this particular may require such a wire in the harness for the radio which it probably doesn't have As you have been alerted to a problem, it would be advisable to talk with professional radio fitters who work on trucks to get the correct advice before starting on the job it could save a lot of frustration
