Has anyone fabricated their own antenna tail light mount? The ones for sale cost too much.

I have a rather large cb am / fm
GALAXY DX66V and can't find a place to mount it and also want to mount a 102" whip.

Don't want a small limited use cb.

Probably about the only place to mount that big a radio is going to be over head between the visors. I would mount the steel whip to the body or the bumper.

I mounted to the bumper but had to cut a 4x4 plate to mount to. There were major stability problems with the antenna directly to the bumper. Also had to run a ground wire, not ideal.
