CB Grounding location

Not sure if anyone has seen this...

I mounted my CB to my AEV hi-lift/pull-pal mount (had to ream out the mounting hole since the powder coat made it just a hair under 1/2"). I did have to use a Dremel to remove powder coat under where the FireStik mount would go. Then, on the bottom between the two tire-carrier tubes, I drilled a hole and mounted a ring terminal/washer on it. I ran a 12g wire through the tailgate hole I already had the coax running through and also through the OEM sleeve. Then, just inside the tub, there were 2 bolts and 10mm nuts holding something that a bar from the tailgate passed through. I was able attach the other end of the 12g wire (with ring terminal) to one of those bolts and got a nice clean 1.2/1.3 SWR across all channels. Both with or without the pull-pal and/or hi-lift mounted.

No drilling of the stock vehicle required!

I'll see if I can't get pics later...
