K40 CB Radio Antenna

Just wondering if anyone here has input on K40 antennas. I was considering the K40 or getting one of the antenna's (not sure what it's called) that i've seen a lot on Jeeps that are attached to rear bumper, about 5 feet tall and wrapped in some kind of black, protective finish.

More specifcally, I'd like to know if the k40 really does increase the range of a "standard" CB radio or is worth getting the other (mentioned above) antenna.

Any links or places to buy would be appreciated.

Thanks ahead of time for any replies.

I also have a magnetic K40 I was looking for a metal place to put it. Not having much luck. I have used K40's for many years. Never had a problem. Just make sure the SWR is good.

Well whenever I actually get one, I think I'm going to mount it to the bracket on the rear bumper that holds it to the frame. Probably have to drill through it but not sure....
