Mounting antenna w/o taillights

I have the flush taillights and diamond plate armor.How can I mount an antenna ? I only see the mounts that go behind the factory taillight.

im not sure what the mounting bracket looks like, you may just have to drill a few holes in your diamond plate armor.

it would help if you post a pic of it.

Not sure if your wanting a certain spot but I mounted mine to the spare tire carrier bolt.
Fabbed up a bracket and works perfect.

Good luck whatever you do

Mirror mount would work. And not look out of place

I never thought about mounting it in the front.Great idea,much easier running the cable for antenna to the front vs rear..Thanks
