One of the things about jeeps is that you can buy pretty much anything

Genright.com
poisonspider
quadratech

browse around and see what is out there. If you see something you like make it , or buy it.

I made my own bracket that bolts up to the factory spot where there is a tie hoop for my bikini top.

I ran the power wires thru the frame. Drilled hole close and grommet'd it. fished thru the frame with another hole drilled low on the passenger side close to the speaker. Drilled and grommeted a hole on the speaker grill to get it under the dash. Then grommeted hole under the hood to fuse panel.

The anntenna wire runs on the surface for now. Someday I will run it thru the frame too. It follows abve the passneger visor, down the passneger side roll cage out the back.

I also used some rc car battery quick discos to take it out when i want and tranfer it to my truck.

bracket:
