KM4GUC. Just getting started. I noticed that Firestik has a 2m antenna that would act as a direct replacement for the CB antenna currently mounted to my spare tire carrier. Thinking about removing the CB entirely and just using a handheld on the trail, and replacing it with a mobile 2m/70cm rig.
Does that sound like it would be a reasonable option, or am I missing some difficulty involved in that? I just got the license a couple of days ago and have no experience yet...

|Sccafire||TeraFlex does not make an antenna mount for behind the tail light for JKU. TeraFlex does make a mount for the JK/JKU that mounts to the spare tire carrier.|

Check out Teraflex CB antenna mount that mounts behind the taillight. Works great for me and others. Easy and clean. I have mine paired with an IC-2100H and a Hustler SF-2.

|realfinkployd||Finally mounting my IC2100 in my JKU. Anyone have any recommendations on a good antenna mount? I'm thinking something off the cowl on the drivers side or possibly that license plate mount I see advertised for CB antennas.|

KF4CHW here. Licensed since 1995, picked up my General back in the spring. Yeasu FT857D rig. Just got a 2015 JKU, looking for a good installation setup for both the rig and an HF antenna. Feel free to PM me with ideas

KC3AUV here. I'm a general class operating a 2m rig in my jeep. Have it mounted in the driver footwell. Cb is in the passenger footwell. Cb goes to a firestik and ham goes to NMO mount on the passenger side of the hood.
Working on learning morse code so I can do more QRP out in the remote areas where I like to off-road.

AB0TL - I have been a ham since 1994, my wife is also in the hobby. I currently own and am the control operator for the 146.835 2m Repeater, formally also had the 444.400 repeater. For two years I owned and operated a small ham radio store here in SE Missouri where I sold antennas, coax, fittings, Ramsey Kits, Heil Microphones, Might Fine Junk (MFJ) and lots of Wouxon radios.
Right now in the Jeep I run and Icom Dual Band (2m/440) radio. Radio is under the driver seat, with control head under the HVAC controls and the Antenna on the 3rd break light.
