That wouldn't be my first choice of mounting locations but so long as you scraped all of the powder coating away from underneath where the antenna mount makes direct metal-to-metal contact with the bumper, it'd work ok.

i plan on wire wheeling both sides, and attaching to front passenger side

What size Firestick? Anything shorter than 4' and youwill have little signal to the rear.

Front bumper mounting is rarely done.

I'd take another look at your possibilities. That much antenna on the front bumbper is going to look really strange. It should work, but it well get in the way. Any woods riding that antenna is going to get hit by every branch, bush and vine.
