That's how I have mine set up. Cord is a little messy right now but the plan is to run it in under the tail light at some point when I get the chance.

The plug goes down in the middle of the stop and then curves back up again into the tub along the tail light. Sorry the pic is blurry.

yeah thats kinda what i was thinking about mounting the plug do you have a picture of you set up?

ditchdoc0331 cool thanks guys good picture i was wondering how i could mount it there thats where i was looking to mount it

rigger1 I would go with a stainless steel whip antenna, usually, 9', with a coil spring base. The 9' whip will give the best performance for your cb. There are antenna 'keepers' that easily attach to the outer edge of the top of your vehicle so you can bend the antenna down and out of the way. Radio Shack or as earlier suggested, any large truk stop. I would recommend a coil spring base for any cb antenna on a Jeep. Cobra or Midland cb's are both real good.

DirtyRob Radio Shack should have what you need. I mounted mine to the rear tire swing stop

busemans not me, i use whatever is easily available or inexpensive. i think i have a cobra right now wit ha firestik antenna because it was all given to me. i need to find an swr meter though because none of it is calibrated together so it doesn;t work for talking on.

read up on your local trail laws though because i have read that a number of clubs and parks don't allow those tall steel whips for safety reasons.

Squeeze If you're serious enough to get a whip antenna and mount, I'd get a decent Cobra model

ditchdoc0331 thanks ill do that any particular brand of cb do u recommend
06-22-2012 05:40 PM
busemans they make steel whips and springs bases for cbs. check out any large truck stop and they will carry most of that stuff
