Antenna cable research

I measured out the distance for the antenna cable to be in the rough neighborhood of 9+ feet (running from the TCU, under the back seat, through the center console, and to the CCC with a little extra length.) Ideally, a 10 or 12 foot fakra extension (one male end, one female end) would work. It seems like a standard SMB cable would suffice, but I like the locking fakra ends. Since the center console has to be out to get the dash out, I see no harm in just running the cable to the TCU as opposed to running another little aftermarket GPS antenna hidden in the dash. I'm researching some fakra extensions now...
