Since its been about 20 years since I've done any kind of audio work in a vehicle, I'm a wee bit rusty. I'm installing a new HU, CB radio and amp into my reg cab Ram. I have the C2R-CHY4 wiring harness for HU. However, my question relies in regards to the power for the CB and the amp. Can I just connect the power (red wire) from the CB and the amp to the yellow power wire from the harness and radio or should I run both the CB and amp power straight to the battery?

You should run a power wire from the battery, the CB might be ok from the small gauge wire at the harness, but the amp needs more. Depending on the size of the amp and its amperage draw, an 8 gauge wire should be the minimum.
