CB Antenna's sizing

What size are most people running on an after market tire carrier? 3' or 4'?
I am getting a firestick and not sure what size to get

Bigger is better.
Ask yourself how often you drive under things that might cause problems.

More importantly, properly tuning your antenna is essential. I just have a cheap 2' VANCO antenna but I never have any difficulty communicating with the first and last Jeep in my group. FYI, I am getting 1.3:1 SWR on channel 20.
