I have the tail light guards and a Teraflex antenna mount. All I had to do was get a couple longer screws from the hardware store. Problem solved!

|gsellars||Suppose I could mount it directly to the tire carrier? I know about the teraflex ones but I don't want to drill a hole in my tub|

That is just a short piece of scrap stainless steel bolted to the spare tire carrier with a hole drilled into it to hold the antenna mount. There has to be a bare metal connection between that piece of stainless steel and the mount so grind off the powder coating & make sure the whole spare tire carrier is well grounded with some woven ground strap like you can buy from radio shack. Plain wire doesn't work well for providing the type of ground an antenna mount requires.
A very good (better) mount is the kind you can buy from www.teraflex.biz that mounts under the tail light.

|gsellars||Can you post pics of your spare tire carrier mount? And how you ran the cable|

|NoBoat0429||I put the tailight guards on and they are solid. I would disagree that they dont offer protection. I drilled into the spare tire mount and problem solved. What I will say is the tailight antanae mount bracket sucks, it will actually flex the rear quarter panel, unless you use a really light anntanae, and even the 3 foot firefly will wobble. Its too close to put a spring on to help with the flex.|

CB antannae budget relocate
I have the rear tailight mount for the cb antennae and I recently purchased a set of rear tail guards. Seems like they will conflict with each other so I need to relocate the antannae mount. Any suggestions w/o ordering a different bracket? I'm already over budget.
