Quick CB/Antenna question

Is the rear 3rd brake light tower enough for grounding the antenna or should I Run a wire from the bracket to the body?

I ran a wire to a mounting point on the chassis - the tailgate itself is not well grounded.

I used a bolt on the roll cage, stripped the paint off and connected the cable to the bolt with a circular wire terminal.

Get an engine ground wire and run from the mount to under the bumper. I scratched off some paint and mounted to the hitch.

Thanks guys, I ended up just screwing right into the 3rd brack light. My swr meter showed 1.0 to 1.3 on all three channels.
