Looks like you have all you need, but I have no idea where that antenna mount attaches to a "fender".

I am planning on this exact setup with the exception of the mount. I personally think that the easiest way to mount this is to simply drill a hole in your spare tire carrier (on top obviously) and mount directly to it. I'd much rather drill my spare mount than my fender.

I personally wouldn't use that mount either. You could do what namasste said, or you could even drill your rear bumper. Though if you put it on your bumper I would suggest a 4' or even 5' antenna. When I did mine I used a mount from Arizona rocky road, that mounts using the top bolts the tire carrier use. Though it is incompatible with some aftermarket tire carriers. I ended up giving mine away to a club buddy and just welded a tab with a hole in it to the carrier.

I am getting ready to do the same set-up with a RR spare tire mount for my JK.

Did you do your install yet? Any advice? Photos of the antenna mount would be awesome.

It attaches under the hood. So it attaches to the steel portion. The tab would be sticking out at the hood line.
