Bumper Question

I'm probably going to mount a CB in my 08 for the trail, (had a ton of CB's over the years).

The back bumper is obviously "metal" underneath, but has a plastic over-cover.

In the interest of "neatness" would you drill through the bumper for the Firestick mount, or what?

What is a clean way of mounting the antenna on a bumper such as these? Get a different bumper?

See the recent thread on "mounting a CB radio". They did a pretty clean job with the license plate holder.

If you mount something to the bumper, either ensure you have one of the bolts very tight to metal or run a 10 gauge ground wire to a frame bolt.
The Cool Tech mount was just too elegant (and functional) for me to resist.

I just installed one, I used the mount they sell that bolts to the spare tire mount! IT is easy and w/ the quick disconnect you canít beat it.
