|cwyatt6||I dont think my antenna looks like that, I'll post pics of mine and maybe you can help me determine the mount and cable I need|

Your going to want an 18 foot coax cable to connect the radio and antenna, and then a location to mount the antenna. If your antenna looks like this one Firestik FS CB Antenna | Right Channel Radios any coax will do Amazon.com: FireStik K-8A 18 foot single antenna coax cable: Electronics. My firestik antenna worked with the cable that I bought from amazon shown here.
Theres a few different options for mounting the antenna but I use this one Teraflex 4997100 - TeraFlex CB Antenna Mount in Steel for 07-13 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec.
Your also going to want an swr meter to tune everything. I bought mine off the web, but I am sure radioshack or a truck stop would have them.

NEED HELP with cb and antenna
I recently bought a cb (cobra 19 ultra III) and a 3 foot firestik antenna, these are the only things I got from him. what else do I need before the instal? also I've read that firestiks have their own mounting studs and are not universal is this true?
