Mounting CB antenna to my rear bumper on my TJ

On 03 TJs is it ok to mount the bracket and cb antenna to the rear bumper? I heard its a bad idea because you get interfernce from the fuel pump, but i saw multiple people with the antenna mounted to there TJ bumpers. Was the interference thing with YJ or CJ not TJ?

If you get interference then you have a problem with your fuel pump.

I don't think it will cause a problem. Ideally you want 2/3 of your anntenna over your vehicles roof line. The higher the antenna the better reception you'll have. I would recommend a rear tail light mount with a 4' Antenna instead of the bumper. just my 0.02.
