Firestik antenna help! PLEASE!

So I just bought the 5 foot Tunable tip firestik antenna. It is not like my other shitty radioshack antenna. With that antenna i just plugged the co-ax into it and I was ready to go. But this firestik doesn't fit with my co-ax. Can someone tell me a list of parts I need to get going? I already have the rugged ridge tire carrier mount. And i would like to keep that. Please help!

First off. I searched google like crazy. I didn't understand anything. I'm not an electronics guru like some people. So I have no idea what anything means. Which is why I'm just asking for a list of things needed. Second off, ever heard of not being an asshole?

Your coax should plug into your Firestik antenna mount and that plugs into the antenna.
Firestik stud w/so-239 connection,
Firestik SS-3H Heavy duty springs
RG-58/U cable with PI-259 connectors
Add a quick disconnect if you choose
