Here is what I have for my CB antenna. Teraflex 1912001 - TeraFlex Drivers Side CB Antenna Mount for 55-06 Jeep® CJ, Wrangler YJ, TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec

I mounted the CB under the dash. The only problem I have is that being a Wrangler, I cannot hear the CB on the road from the wind noise. But I really only use it while on the trails.

Is there anyway you can get a picture of that?
That sounds like a good idea.

I used a teraflex tail light mount and ran the cable along the inside of the body, and mounted the cb to the front of my tuffy security box with the holes for the cup holder.

i mounted my cb under my radio bin right next to the ash tray.
i mounted my antenna to the bumper at first but every time it got caught on a branch it would slap my hard top and i was scarred it would chip the paint so i mounted it right behind the rear passenger fender flare to the bottom of the tub.

i will try and get some pictures up.

I mounted my CB (full size cobra) where my stock stereo was located and installed my stereo in a Tuffy center console. Took a bit of cutting but looks good. My antenna is mounted to my ice chest/spare tire rack which gets it a bit higher.

I have a tail light mount, ran the wire up and over into the tub, behind the back seat, under the seat, under the passenger seat and up into the center console where the CB is mounted. My handheld mic is mounted on the front of the console, with the cord running through another hole in the front, and I have a aux speaker under the dash

There's pics in my Jeep Profile, I'm on my laptop, so I don't have them readily available, so if you wanna take a look, the pics should be there
